The success of laparoscopic cholecystectomy has expanded the scope of laparoscopic procedures and resection of retroperitoneal organs and selected cystic intraadominal masses have been performed by minimally invasive surgical techniques. We report the case of a 45-year-old that presented a retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma that was successfully excised by a laparoscopic approach. Laparoscopic surgical techniques should be considered for treatment of selected cystic lesions of intrabdominal or retroperitioneal origin.
