An unusual case of omental cyst is described. The child initially presented with a unilocular intraperitoneal fluid collection on CT. After paracentesis, CT showed freely layering peritoneal fluid, with eventual complete resolution of fluid. CT eight months later demonstrated re-appearance of a multiseptated cystic mass. At surgery, an omental cyst was found.
