Résumé
We present the case of a 67-year-old male patient with mediastinal and retroperitoneal fibrosis. In Europe, this is a rare disease. Treatment was established to prevent complications due to strictures or compressions. Because of his diabetes, a therapy of low-dose prednisone combined with mycophenolate mofetil, known as steroid sparing agent, was applied. As a result, the radiological follow-up showed a marked decrease in the mediastinal and retroperitoneal masses.
