Key Clinical Message
Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are rare and occur secondary to congenital malformation of the lymphatics, mostly in the mesenterium. Acute or chronic volvulus of the small bowel may occur by traction of the lymphangioma. Therapy includes resection of the lymphangioma and of the small bowel involved.
