Abstract
Introduction: Retroperitoneal lymphatic cysts are uncommon in occurrence. Due to presence of large potential space in the retroperitoneum, the cyst grows to a considerable size in abdomen before it presents clinically and the presentation noted in most of the cases are non-specific, confusing to the surgeons leading to delay in diagnosis. The treatment of choice is complete excision of cyst. Nowadays minimal access procedures are tried.
Case Report: We report a case of a huge retroperitoneal lymphatic cyst which had complex presentation mimicking as mesenteric cyst in a 22-year-old female, which was managed laparoscopically.
Conclusion: Retroperitoneal cysts are uncommon, with a very low estimated incidence. Approximately, one-third of patients with retroperitoneal cysts are asymptomatic and the cyst is found incidentally. Retroperitoneal lymphatic cysts are an uncommon lesion in adults. With complete surgical excision these tumors have an excellent prognosis, with great symptomatic relief. In such selected cases laparoscopy is helpful both as a diagnostic and therapeutic modality.
