Giant Cystic Retroperitoneal Lymphangioma in an Adult

Mary Mathew, Bhavna Nayal, Padma Priya J, Stanley Mathew.

Abstract
Lymphangiomas are uncommon benign neoplasms resulting from malformation of the lymphatic vessels. These lesions usually manifest in young individuals. Retroperitoneal lymphangiomas are very rare and may mimic various benign and malignant tumours. We report a rare case of giant retroperitoneal lymphangioma in a 51 year old male.

Key words: Retroperitoneum, Cyst, Giant, Lymphangioma
