Huge Mesenteric Lymphangioma – A Rare Cause of Acute Abdomen

H Bansal, RK Jenaw, R Mandia

Abstract


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.

Keywords: Benign tomours; Congenital masses; Lymphangioma.
