Mesenteric cysts are one of the least common intraabdominal lesions, which are very rare in neonates. Among mesenteric cysts, a chylous cyst is the rarest one of all. This entity can be found anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract from the duodenum to the rectum. Mesenteric cysts may be asymptomatic and found on routine examinations, or can present with symptoms such as abdominal pain, palpable mass, abdominal distension and intestinal obstruction. We report a rare case of chylous mesenteric cyst in a neonate, who presented with symptoms of the intestinal obstruction along with the review of the literature.
Key Words: Chylous mesenteric cyst , Neonate
