Cystic lymphangioma, or cystic hygroma, is a true, benign, congenital multic-ystic tumor arising from sequestration of embryonic lymphatic tissue. Most often it occurs at birth or early in life, and it was found most commonly in the neck, but rarely in the retroperitoneum and its distribution coincides with that of the primitive lymph sac. We have experienced a case of retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma in a 1 year and 11 month old boy who had revealed left flank mass since birth and developed rapid abdominal distension since 3 months prior to admission. The surgical resection showed a huge multiloculated cystic lymphan- gioma. A brief review of literature was made.
Key Words: Retroperitoneal lymphangioma, Cystic lymphangioma, Cystic hygroma
