Lymphangiomas are uncommon benign tumors, usually encountered early in childhood. Here is described the case of a pregnant woman at 15 weeks' gestation with a symptomatic ileal small bowel lymphangioma that was approached laparoscopically. A limited number of laparoscopically managed cases of abdominal lymphangiomas have been reported. This is the first reported laparoscopically assisted resection of a small bowel cystic lymphangioma during pregnancy.
