Mesenteric cysts (MCs) are a group of rare benign intra-abdominal lesions that are usually asymptomatic but with chances of recurrence and malignant transformation if incompletely excised. Its asymptomatic or nonspecific symptomatic nature makes preoperative diagnosis difficult. We report a case of huge congenital MC in a 6 years old. He was brought to our center following a history of recurrent abdominal pain since birth. The diagnosis was suggested following computed tomography scan but only confirmed postlaparotomy through histopathologic evaluation. No recurrence on follow-up has been reported.
