The article presents a problem analysis on a case of a 55-year-old man suffering from upper abdominal discomfort. A large painless, and smooth mass palpated in the epigastric region was revealed on the examination. The patient was advised for a chromatography (CT) scan due to a suspected abdominal cystic lesion between the liver and the spleen. Magnetic imaging resonance was given to the entire abdominal cavity to show the cystic mass. He underwent subsequent surgeries for the treatment.
