Cysts are fluid filled membranes, and mesenteric cysts occur in the membrane supporting the baby's intestines.Mesenteric cysts in infants are very unusual. They are completely benign, but may cause some symptoms in when your baby has been born such as swelling of the abdomen and occasionally cause a twist to occur in the intestine.These cysts do not always disppear by themselves. Occasionally they may need to be removed at an operation but the operation is very successful.If your baby is a litlle girl, it is necessary to be certain that the cyst is in the mesentary and is not an ovarian cyst, so follow-up ultra-sounds are necessary.
