Benign cystic mesothelioma (BCM) is a rare tumor arising from endothelial cells of the pelvic visceral or parietal peritoneum. It is a clinically and histopathologically benign disease. Etiology and pathogenesis of BCM remain unclear. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an inherited disorder characterized by episodes of fever, and abdominal, chest and/or joint inflammation. Association between malignant mesothelioma and FMF has been reported previously; however, co-existence of FMF and BCM is rare. Here, we report a case of BCM in a 43-year-old male patient with FMF.
