Abstract

Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are rare entities that can manifest as retroperitoneal cystic lesions, presenting a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Managing these cases often requires laparotomy, laparoscopy, or percutaneous intervention, with outcomes varying in terms of success. Here, we present a case of an infected abdominal cystic lymphangioma that was successfully managed through laparoscopy, following thorough preoperative planning.
