Abstract

Mesenteric cysts are a rare phenomenon and can be encountered in different regions of the mesentery or in the retroperitoneal region. They are usually asymptomatic but may lead to a variety of symptoms depending on their site. We report a case of a mesenteric cyst presenting as a femoral hernia, which is, to our knowledge, the second case found in the literature. Forty-eight years old female patient presented with a history of pain and swelling in her left inguinal region for six months. Although femoral hernias are rare conditions, mesenteric cysts can protrude inside the femoral canal. In a case of clinical suspicion of such a condition, appropriate imaging should be performed.
