A 2-month-old female infant presented with subacute intestinal obstruction of 1½ month duration. Investigations revealed a cystic intra-abdominal lesion. On exploration, a large multicystic mass was noted in the ileal mesentery with induration and inflammatory interbowel adhesions. It had resulted in bowel volvulus. It was completely excised along with the involved bowel. Histopathologic examination diagnosed the tumor to be a cystic lymphangioma. It is the youngest patient with mesenteric cystic lymphangioma ever reported in the literature.
