Abstract

Wide range of congenital and acquired cysts that arise from various tissue linings of the abdomen are grouped as mesenteric cysts. A non-pancreatic pseudocyst of the mesentery is an uncommon, acquired pathologic entity, developing secondary to trauma or infection. Awareness of the imaging features of non-pancreatic pseudocyst may help radiologists to differentiate them other abdominal neoplastic processes and may prevent unnecessary surgery. We report CT and MR imaging features of a non-pancreatic pseudocyst of the mesentery.
