Correspondence:  Youngjoon Kang,
Cystic lymphangioma is an uncommon benign tumor that appears in organ with a many number of lymphatics, and rarely develops in the abdomen. It occurs in all ages, especially children. When it occurs in the mesentery, it called mesentery lymphatics malformation. It causes abdominal pain, abdominal distension, vomiting and constipation. If the cystic lymphangioma presents with symptoms, surgical excision is required for treatment and diagnosis. In this report, we describe a case of cystic lymphangioma that presented with a small bowel volvulus in a 5-year-old girl visiting emergency room. At first, we suspected acute appendicitis for her symptoms. After that, ultrasonography and computerized tomography show findings of a cystic lymphangioma. It presents symptom suspected volvulus. So operation was performed.
