Huge Mesenteric Lymphangioma – A Rare Cause of Acute Abdomen
Lymphangiomas are benign congenital masses which occur most commonly in head and neck of children and incidence of mesenteric lymphangiomas is very rare. We report such a case of huge mesenteric lymphangioma in a 20 year old male who presented to us with acute abdomen. Pre-operative diagnosis is difficult due to silent clinical course and lack of awareness of the clinical and morphological features of this disease.
