A mesenteric cyst is a cystic lesion located in the mesentery. Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas may
present in various ways, ranging from an asymptomatic mass to an acute abdomen presentation. We
presented a case of an 11-month-old baby boy who was admitted with diffuse abdominal distention.
Computerized Tomography (CT) revealed a huge right abdominal complex cystic mass. At
laparotomy, we found a giant infected mesenteric cyst in the distal ileum. Pathological examination
confirmed a diagnosis of mesenteric cystic lymphangioma containing chylous milky fluid.
