The patient with multiple mesenteric cystic lymhangioma was treated in neonatal perıod through prenatal diagnosis: Case report and literature review

Mesenteric cystic lymphangiomas are benign congenital tumors characterized by the proliferation of lymphatic channels. There is an uncommon disorder that constitutes 0.5 % of all lymphangiomas and can cause fatal complications such as volvulus, intestinal obstruction and traumatic or spontaneous rupture, requiring emergency surgery. For this reason, prenatal diagnosis is important. We present a three day old newborn with multiple cystic abdominal lymphangioma treated with resection anastomosis through prenatal diagnosis.
