A rare cause of acute abdomen in pediatric age

Vlazakis S., Kazanis I., Krasoudakis A., Marikakis F., Alifieris E.

Mesenteric cyst is an extremely rare intra-abdominal tumor, which develops from ectopic lymphatic tissue. Most cases of intra-abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are asymptomatic except when complicated. Rupture of a mesenteric cyst is a life-threatening complication whose conservative treatment is not advisable. Prompt surgical treatment is imperative. We report our experience in the management of two cases of mesenteric cysts with partial rupture due to blunt abdominal trauma.
