Abstract

Mesothelial inclusion cyst is a rare benign tumour that has only 130 cases reported in the literature. Accurate diagnosis and optimal management of this condition remains uncertain. We report a 58-year-old women, whom presents with a vomiting blood. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed the presence of severe Esophagitis. MSCT of the abdomen revealed a round cyst measuring (14.5 cm) with peripheral calcification. Final interpretation "consistent with mesothelial cyst with secondary acute chronic inflammation and hemorrhage". The patient recovered well and had no recurrence at 1-year follow-up.
