ABSTRACT
This article presents a question and its answer related to abdominal mass. The case study in the article describes a 70 year old woman presented with a painless abdominal mass. She had a background of previous oesophageal carcinoma with liver metastases with a remarkably long disease free interval of over three years after complete response to local radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy. Cholecystectomy had been performed for cholelithiasis more than 10 years previously. Computed tomographic (CT) scan demonstrated a large cystic structure arising from the bowel mesentery.
