Abstract:

We are reporting a case of giant chylolymphatic cyst of mesentery that presented with obstruction in a neonate. On exploratory laparotomy surgical excision of the cyst along with ileum was carried out. The cyst was diagnosed as chylolymphatic cyst on histopathological examination. Due to rarity, we are prompted to report this case.
