Mesenteric cysts are lesion with low malignancy risk and have an incidence that is less than 1 in 100,000 patients. We present a clinical case of a patient with intense abdominal pain who presents a perforated mesenteric non-specific cyst that was resected with the adjacent small bowel. Mesenteric cysts are usually asymptomatic but the symptomatology can include abdominal swelling with or without pain, early satiety, vomiting, diarrhoea, dyspepsia, and constipation. Perforation is described as a possible complication and surgery with complete excision of the cyst is the treatment of choice.
