Low grade cystic mesothelioma or Benign multicystic mesothelioma is a rare neoplasm that arises from the peritoneal surface of abdominal or pelvic viscera as well as extraperitoneal space and omentum. Synonyms like multilocular peritoneal inclusion cysts(MPIC), benign multicystic mesothelioma are used interchangeably in the literature. Multicystic mesothelioma of the peritoneum was first described in 1979. To the best of our knowledge no case of cystic mesothelioma of rectus sheath has been described till date. A case of low grade cystic mesothelioma arising from the rectus sheath in a 35 yrs old female is documented here due to its rarity.
