Abstract

Teratoma of mesentery is uncommon. It is a germ cell tumour which originates from the gonads, seen in females of reproductive age groups. Teratomas are usually found in the sacrococcygeal area in the gonads and less frequently at other sites and rarely in the mesentery (1). We report a case of mesenteric teratoma in a 17-year-old male patient. Mesenteric teratoma should be kept in mind while dealing with cystic lesions in abdomen. Clinical presentation is vague but radiology helps in pre-operative diagnosis.
