Generalized cystic lymphangiomatosis is an uncommon congenital lymphatic malformation that may affect soft and hard tissues as well as organs. It is rarely seen in adult patients. Osseous lesions appear as well-defined cystic lesions with a sclerotic rim without periosteal reaction or a soft tissue component. A nonenhancing lesion in fluid density appears to be one of the most common characteristics of abdominal diseases, and clinical features are directly related to the extent of the disease. In this report, we present peroperative, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and histopathological findings of a very rare case of generalized cystic lymphangiomatosis recognized in adulthood.
