Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that account for about 5% of all benign tumors in infants and children. The most common sites are the neck and axilla, which account for 95% of cases. Lymphangiomas in the peritoneal cavity are extremely rare, particularly in adults. Most commonly arising from the mesentery followed by the omentum, mesocolon and retroperitoneum. Preoperative diagnosis is often difficult due to the frequent silent clinical course.
