Abstract
Lymphangiomatosis, a benign tumor consisting of a cluster of dilated lymphatic channels, is very unusual. Most lymphangiomatoses are found in the neck and head area. Less than 5% are diagnosed intraabdominally and they are very infrequently encountered in the retroperitoneal area. Herein, we report a rare case of asymptomatic lymphangiomatosis of a 13 year-old boy during a routine chest radiologic exam at school who had disseminated lymphangiomatosis involving anterior mediastinum, multiple bone, spleen and retroperitoneum, which presented occasionally.
Key Words: Lymphangiomatosis, Mediastinum, Bone, Spleen, Retroperitoneum
