Any cystic lesion occurring in the mesentery which may or may not extend into the retroperitoneum is referred to as a mesenteric cyst; they have an infrequent incidence rate in the pediatric age group. Definitive etiology of the cystic lymphatic malformations is still not known but there are multiple hypotheses. A young male child presented with acute onset abdominal pain and palpable intra-abdominal mass and ultrasonography revealed presence of two lesions, one of them as an encysted turbid fluid collection in the right lumbar region and the other as a dilated, tortuous, intercalated structure.
