Abstract

Cystic mesotheloma is an uncommon lesion of the peritoneum occurring predominantly in women of reproductive age. The case was a 21 years girl presented with 4 years history of mild abdominal distension and periodic pain. The results of the clinical examinations were normal. Sonography and CT scan confirmed gross ascites. The results of paraclinical tests were normal without any positive findings for etiology of ascites. During laparoscopy multiple transparent cysts were found in pelvic and culdesac. All cysts were removed by laparoscopy. Histology confirmed benign cystic mesotheloma. Reviewing the records revealved that this case is the second case of mesothelial cysts that presented with ascites.
