Lymphatic cyst of the mesentery is a rare lesion; one case per 100,000 hospital admissions is reported. A case of lymphatic cyst in a sixty-one year old woman is presented. The symptoms are extremely variable, not characteristic and correlated to the location and size of the cyst. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography may lead to a correct diagnosis, which is regularly made at the time of abdominal exploration. In this case the cyst was enucleated from the mesentery with open surgery.
