Abstract:
Lymphangiomas are lesions attributed to the congenital malformations of lymphatic system or acquired chronic obstruction of the lymphatic network due to trauma, radiation, surgical manipulation, inflammation or infection. Overall, lymaphangiomas are rare and particularly retroperitoneal lymphangiomas are far more sparse per reported cases. In this study, we have introduced a middle-aged woman admitted to the gastroenterology unit with a progressive abdominal pain since approximately one month before her visit. She was found to have a retroperitoneal lymphangioma after a precise medical work up.
