Leiomyoma of the mesentery is an uncommon tumor among gastrointestinal stromal tumors. This has been documented in adults and children. However, there is only one case reported in an infant and we are presenting such a rare second case in a 6-month-old male infant. Exploration of the abdomen revealed a solid mass within the leaves of the mid-ileal mesentery that could be enucleated out entirely after careful dissection. Histopathology suggested it to be leiomyoma of mesentery.
