A case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the gastrocolic ligament is presented. It appeared as a huge, thin walled cystic tumour in the upper abdominal cavity on CT. Barium studies showed splaying of the stomach and transverse colon by the mass. 1 year after resection of the cystic tumour, recurrence occurred at the greater curvature of the stomach and in the liver, with a cystic appearance similar to the primary tumour. To our knowledge, the CT appearance of primary cystic MFH of the gastrocolic ligament has not been previously documented.
