Dr. Yavalkar Pa, Dr Shinde J, Dr Kshirsagar

Abstract :

Lymphatic cysts are uncommon benign lesions occurring commonly in the neck and axilla and rarely in the abdomen. They are more common in males than females and occur mainly in childhood. They are detected incidentally during imaging studies being performed for some other unrelated reasons. Large omental cysts may mimic ascites.Patients with omental cysts usually present with abdominal distention and a painless mass with vague abdominal symptoms.They may present acutely due to complications like intestinal obstruction, hemorrhage into the cyst or torsion. Most cysts present with chronic symptoms. In children the presenting symptoms are due tointestinal obstruction. Complete excision of the cyst is the treatment of choice. Ultrasonography is helpful in excluding other causes of abdominal mass. We report a case of giant lymphatic multi loculated cyst presenting with abdominal mass. The clinical features, radiological findings and outcome is described.
