Four cases of mesenteric cystic neoformations personally observed in the last years are reported. This pathology should not be underestimated, since not only does it present several problems regarding diagnosis and treatment, but a nosologic classification is also difficult to make. Since such cysts present with aspecific symptoms, a definite diagnosis cannot always be reached by a preliminary X-ray investigation, which may lead to various interpretations, but often requires a subsequent histologic examination of operative specimen.
