Cystic lymphangioma of the pancreas is a rare benign vascular tumor. Its histogenesis is still hypothetical and its preoperative diagnosis difficult to establish. We report a case in a 26-year-old boy who presented with abdominal pain with the notion of a constipation-type transit disorder. Radiological investigations showed an intraperitoneal mesenteric cystic tumor. A complete resection of the mass was performed. Pathological examination of the operative specimen confirmed the presence of cystic formations, the wall of no need keep the end which was lined by a squamous, endothelial epithelium with a fibrous wall dotted with a few lymphoid clusters in favor of cystic lymphangioma.
