Heterotopic mesenteric ossification is a very rare reactive lesion in the small bowel mesentery, and it is related with trauma or surgical operation. It is pathologically characterized by well formed bone trabeculae and prominent osteoblastic rimming and is clinically related to rapid and recurrent bowel obstruction symptoms. This unusual reactive process shares many clinical and pathologic features with myositis ossificans. We report here on a rare case of heterotopic mesenteric ossification in 28-year-old man who underwent a delayed small bowel resection 15 days after trauma.
