Abstract

Congenital peritoneal and retroperitoneal lymphangiomas are rare lesions, which are often difficult to treat. This is the case of a 15 year old who had life-threatening complications from diffuse abdominal lymphagiomatosis after failure of accepted medical and surgical therapies. The authors describe the use of the argon beam coagulator in the treatment of this disease.
