Ultrasonographic findings of omental and mesnenteric cysts

Journal Article:

Abstract

Omental and mesenteric cysts are uncommon diseases mostly occurring in young children. They are felt to have a common origin from obstructed or ectopic lymphatics. We reviewed three cases of omental cyst and three cases of mesenteric cyst. Sonography showed cystic mass with a thin wall and multiple thin septi dividing the cyst into multiple irregular spaces. In most cases(5/6) solid portions were detected and they were proved to be tissue debris and hemorrhagic clots. Fluid content was either anechoic or echogenic. Floating echogenicities or fluid-fluid level were detected in some cases. Ultrasound is very useful in the diagnosis of omental and mesenteric cysts in children, giving reliable information relating to internal hemorrhage, infection or adhesion to adjacent organs
