|Title:||Retroperitoneal lymphangioma.||Austin Authors:||Cherk, Martin H;Nikfarjam, Mehrdad ;Christophi, Christopher||Affiliation:||Department of Surgery, University of Melbourne, Austin Hospital, Studley Road, Heidelberg, Victoria 3084, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Jan-2006||Publication information:||Asian Journal of Surgery / Asian Surgical Association; 29(1): 51-4||Abstract:||Lymphangiomas are rare cystic tumours that may present as cystic masses in the retroperitoneum. Retroperitoneal lymphangiomas account for approximately 1% of all lymphangiomas. Confusion with other cystic tumours of the retroperitoneum including those arising from the liver, kidney and pancreas is common. A case of a retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma occurring in a 41-year-old woman raising interesting diagnostic and management issues is reported. The patient presented with vague abdominal pain and persistent nausea. Radiological imaging demonstrated a large multiloculated thin-walled cyst involving the upper retroperitoneum. Surgical resection was complete, revealing a benign cavernous lymphangioma. The patient made a complete recovery and was disease-free 30 months postoperatively.||Gov't Doc #:||16428102||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10081||DOI:||10.1016/S1015-9584(09)60297-9||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16428102||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Adult
