Abstract:  Gorham-Stout syndrome is a rare disease characterized by progressive osteolysis leading to disappearance of the bone. Vascular proliferations have been implicated in the pathogenesis of this syndrome. The case of a 7-year-old girl with a prominent invasive lymphatic malformation on the lumbosacral area and massive osteolysis of the pelvic girdle is reported.
