Mesenteric cyst is presented as lump abdomen or detected incidentally in ultrasonography for other reason or when it becomes symptomatic due to complications. Spontaneous infection or rupture of the mesenteric cyst and disseminated infections are very rare complications in children. Expeditious diagnosis and surgical excision of the cyst are imperative for fruitful outcome. We report a case of a perforated mesenteric cyst with sepsis and intracerebral haemorrhage in a 9 month child who was managed successfully in our institute.
