Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V12180835
In this case report, a 12-year-old girl was admitted to hospital due to abdominal pain. An intra-abdominal mass was seen on ultrasound and initially mistaken for an ovarian cyst. Later, a CT scan was performed, and it revealed an intraperitoneal cystic mass compatible with a mesenteric cyst, which is a rare benign abdominal abnormality. The cyst was removed by laparotomy, and histology confirmed the diagnosis. The patient had no readmissions afterwards.
