OBJECTIVE To provide a comprehensive review of peritoneal inclusion cysts in the female patient population. [] Key MethodDATA SOURCES We searched the MEDLINE database for articles with keywords "peritoneal inclusion cyst" and "benign (multicystic) mesothelioma." Our search was limited to the English language. All reports included a tissue-confirmed diagnosis, except 1. Case reports and case series with adolescent and adult patients were reviewed.

Benign multicystic mesothelioma and peritoneal inclusion cysts: are they the same clinical and histopathological entities? A systematic review to find an evidence-based management

Peritoneal mesothelial cysts are more common than had previously been thought and most authors consider them non-neoplastic; thus the designation of “peritoneal inclusion cyst” is preferable.

Peritoneal inclusion cysts: clinical characteristics and imaging features

Peritoneal inclusion cysts (PIC) occur in women and men at all ages and knowledge of patient characteristics and typical PIC imaging appearances may prevent unnecessary or unnecessarily aggressive therapy.

Minimally invasive management of peritoneal inclusion cysts in paediatric patients

Minimally invasive percutaneous drainage with other adjuncts can offer symptomatic relief and short term resolution of large PICs in adolescents with a background of multiple abdominal operations.

Successful treatment of peritoneal inclusion cysts with dienogest: two case reports

Two patients with peritoneal inclusion cysts who were successfully treated with dienogest are described, and the goal of treatment is not to eradicate the cysts, but rather, symptomatic relief.

Benign multicystic peritoneal mesothelioma: literature review and update

A case of BMPM is presented in a 60-year-old male – a rare disease in an uncommon patient population and the name of this entity is also controversial, with possible etiologies, including a neoplastic versus a reactive process.
