Mesentric Cyst: A Rare Intra-Abdominal Tumor

Dr. Kamlesh Galani [3] | Dr. Aneri Rathod | Dr. Ankur Modi | Dr. Digvijaysinh Sindhav


Abstract: Mesenteric cysts are rare benign intra-abdominal tumors with an incidence of 1 case per 250, 000 hospital admission. Because of variable and non-specific clinical symptoms and signs, they are discovered either accidentally during an abdominal radiological examination for other reason or during laprotomy for the management of one of the complications. The aetiology of such cysts remains unknown but several theories regarding their development exist. Complete surgical excision of the cyst is the treatment of choice. Due to the rarity of this entity and the lack of specific symptoms, correct pre-operative diagnosis is difficult. Knowledge of these lesions is important due to the various complications associated with suboptimal surgical management.


Keywords: Mesentric cyst, chylolymphatic cyst, intra-abdominal tumor,
