Giant Mesenteric Cyst- Managed with Laparotomy

Mesenteric cysts are rare, abdominal tumours, they are benign growths with malignant transformation reported in 3% of cases. The incidence has been estimated to be 1 in 100,000 in the adult population and 1 in 20,000 in the pediatric population . Mesenteric cysts can occur in any part of the mesentery from the duodenum to the rectum. They occur more often in the small intestine (66%) than the large intestine (33%) . In the large bowel most arise from the right colon and ileum but rarely have been found in the mesentery of the descending colon, sigmoid colon and rectum . The lining of mesenteric cysts are comprised of endothelial or mesothelial cells, usually cuboidal or columnar-type cells. They lack smooth muscle and lymphatic spaces (unlike cystic lymphangiomas).
