Introduction: Mesenteric cysts are very rare abdominal tumors. Their diagnosis can be challenging some times because there aren’t many typical clinical or radiological features, they usually present with non-specific abdominal discomfort/pain, as incidental findings of as an acute abdomen. They can be present on any are of the mesentery but the most common location is on the jejunum. Enucleation is sufficient to manage them.
Case presentation: 57 y/o Male without any significant medical
or surgical history that presented to the office with
one month history of vague abdominal discomfort and
fullness in the LUQ. On physical exam the abdomen was soft,
not tender and a discrete mass was felt on the LUQ.
All his blood work was unremarkable and as part of his evaluation he had a CT scan of the abdomen that showed a 15 cm mesenteric cyst.
This video shows the challenging and uneventful laparoscopic dissection and excision of the cyst.
