A 36-year-old woman required laparotomy early in the puerperium after a normal delivery because of the presence of a large abdominal cyst. At laparotomy, a large mucinous cystadenoma was found attached to the root of the ileal mesentery; the ovaries were normal. This is the third case of mesenteric cyst published in association with pregnancy, but the first with a mucinous pattern. Pathologic aspects, possible complications, and treatment are discussed.
