Peritoneal cysts are rare benign intra-abdominal lesions most commonly found attached to the mesentery of the ileum. They may be asymptomatic, present with abdominal pain, bloating or discovered incidentally. We describe the case of a peritoneal cyst located in an unusual position in a female patient; attached to the falciform ligament.
