Aim: Due to the widespread use of first-trimester screening ultrasound, the incidence of adnexal masses in pregnancy has risen. However, the diagnosis of adnexal masses is not always straightforward and all differentials need a thorough evaluation. Background: Adnexal masses during pregnancy are not uncommon. Large simple ovarian cysts can mimic a mesenteric cyst rarely. Case description: A 21-year-old female with complaints of acute pain in the abdomen, with vomiting and two episodes of fever presented on the 7th day of vaginal delivery. She was diagnosed as having a large mesenteric cyst in the antenatal period, however, on repeat imaging and exploration, it was an adnexal mass with torsion detorsion. Conclusion: This case report highlights the importance of the diagnosis of adnexal masses accurately early during pregnancy and one of the potential challenges faced thereof. Clinical significance: An accurate diagnosis and planned management of the pregnancy with an adnexal mass can lead to favorable maternal and fetal outcomes. All differentials need thorough consideration.
