ABSTRACT: A 3-year old male child presented with distention of abdomen, severe anemia, constipation, lump in lower abdomen and fever. Ultrasonography revealed a mass in the lower abdomen which was reported as a mesenteric mass. On laparotomy, a fleshy tumor like mass at the jejunoileal junction with associated mesenteric lymphadenopathy was found. Resection of the mass with end to end anastomosis of the bowel and lymph node biopsy was done. Histopathology revealed the mass to be an inflammatory fibroid polyp (inflammatory pseudotumor). The patient fully recovered and is on regular follow-up.
