Mesenteric cyst-ovarian implant syndrome.

Primary tumors and cysts of the mesentery are quite rare. The cysts are said to be from embryonic, traumatic, or neoplastic origin. Mesenteric cysts of ovarian tissue origin, which, to our knowledge, have been reported only three times, appear under the term ovarian remnant syndrome, and involved patients with previous oophorectomies. It appears that the incidental implantation and growth of the minute portions of the ovarian tissue in the pelvis or lower abdomen is the origin of the syndrome. We describe two cases of the mesenteric cyst-ovarian implant syndrome with a brief review of the literature.
