Abstract

An intra-abdominal cystic lymphangioma is a rare benign tumour in adults' uncommon location, originating from lymphatic vessels. Here we present the rare case of 73 year old female presented with right upper abdominal pain, routine blood and radiological investigations done with contrast CT scan showed gastro intestinal stromal tumour over 2nd part of duodenum posteriorly, electively operated and solid cystic mass excised, histopathology showed cystic lymphangioma. The rare looking cystic mass in rare location showing gist/hydatid cyst on CT scan surgical excision showed cystic lymphangioma, where treatment is to excise the mass to prevent recurrence or complications.
