Benign multi-cystic mesothelioma is a rare tumor arising from abdominal peritoneum. It carries a high recurrence rate with risk of malignant transformation.Our case presented with abdominal pain, his examination revealing an ill-defined right iliac fossa lump.CT demonstrated a contrast enhancing cystic pelvic lesion. Laparoscopic procedure was planned as it helps to not only correctly diagnose the lesion, but also allows complete excision. Intraoperative complications can be tackled with adequate surgical skill. On immunohistochemistry, positive expression of calretinin confirmed the diagnosis of benign peritoneal mesothelioma. Cytoreductive surgery either by open or laparoscopic approach followed by hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is the standard approach for such cases to minimise recurrences.
