Congenital cystic lesions arising in the omentum are a rare finding in the paediatric age group. They are difficult to diagnose preoperatively as they have few distinct features; the diagnosis is often confirmed only at lalaparotomy. They are thought to arise due to a developmental abnormality of the lymphatic system. Two cases are presented and the literature reviewed. The treatment of choice is complete resection. Long-term follow-up is unnecessary due to their benign nature.

Mesenteric and omental cysts are rare benign intraabdominal anomalies with uncertain etiologies. Surgical removal is the preferred treatment owing to complications related to cyst enlargement. A 1-year-old boy with an intrauterine diagnosis of a cystic mass adjacent to his stomach and liver, a 3-year-old girl, and a 3-year-old boy with an incidental diagnosis of intraabdominal cysts were scheduled for laparoscopic surgery. The mass of the 1-year-old boy was a multiloculated cyst originating from the lesser omentum, the incidental mass in the girl was a multiseptated cyst located in the jejunoileal mesentery, and the incidental mass of the 3-year-old boy was a uniloculated cyst originating from the ileal mesentery...

Congenital omental cysts are rare intra-abdominal pathology, which are difficult to diagnose preoperatively; as such a high index of suspicion is required for accurate preoperative diagnosis. We present a case of congenital omental cyst in a 3-year-old girl who presented with huge abdominal distension. We performed diagnostic examinations including ultrasonography and CT of the abdomen. An omental cyst was diagnosed because of its position and connection to the surrounding tissues. She was operated and cyst was excised completely...

BACKGROUND: Mesenteric cysts are rare intra-abdominal lesions and account for only one in 100,000 acute adult admissions. There is a broad spectrum of symptoms and patients present with nonspecific complaints of abdominal pain, distension, or an abdominal mass. In this study, we present a series of patients with mesenteric cysts, with emphasis on the presentation, management, and outcome. METHODS: A total of 16 cases presented to our institution from 1994 to 2007...

A case of omental cyst in a young girl who presented with distension and a lump in abdomen and having difficulty in micturition is reported. Pre-operative diagnosis was achieved by ultrasonography. An exploratory laparotomy with excision of cyst was done and histopathologic examination of the specimen confirmed the diagnosis. The postoperative course was uneventful. The aetiopathogenesis, special features of the disease and review of literature is discussed.

OBJECTIVE: Mesenteric cysts are rare intra-abdominal masses generally omited or briefly reported in textbooks. Their rarity had fostered a lack of information and difficulty in classification. The goal of the study is to present a simple, comprehensive, and reproducible classification of mesenteric cysts. METHODS: A large review of the literature with particular attention to recent series was performed in order to identify and characterize the different groups of mesenteric cysts...

Mesenteric and omental cysts are rare intra-abdominal lesions. The rarity of these lesions, with an incidence of only about 1 in 140,000 hospital admissions, and the absence of characteristic clinical findings makes diagnosis difficult. Fourteen patients were treated for either mesenteric and/or omental cysts between 1965 and 1994 at Egleston Children's Hospital at Emory University. Of the 14 patients, 6 were female, 8 male; 3 were non-Caucasian, and 11 were Caucasian. They ranged in age from in-utero to 12 years old, with the most common presenting symptoms being abdominal distention (71%), pain (50%), vomiting (50%), and pain and distention (43%)...

Cystic lesions of the mesentery, omentum, and retroperitoneum are rare; from 1956 to 1990, 22 patients had operative treatment for such lesions at our institution. They ranged in age from 1 month to 14 years; 75% were younger than 5 years. All had either an acute abdomen or, more commonly, a silent abdominal mass. In all cases, the histologic diagnosis was lymphangioma. Abdominal ultrasonography was done in all cases after 1977 except for two patients who had an acute abdomen requiring emergency exploration...
