Mesothelioma is a rare condition with 1 in 1 million incidences. Pleura being the commonest site followed by peritoneum. Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) presents difficulties and delay in diagnosis due to non-specific symptoms. Here we present a case of 22 year old female who presented with the complaints of abdominal pain and distension. No history of asbestos exposure was reported. A lump was palpable on abdominal and pelvic examination. Computed tomography (CT) scan was suggestive of large solid tumour with fat stranding. Laparotomy was done and a solid mass lesion seen on left side mesentery attached to bowel. The mass was removed. Final diagnosis was possible with histopathological documentation of tumor characteristics, which were consistent with dictating a mesothelial origin.
