A case of fetal chest wall cystic lymphangioma diagnosed prenatally at 28 weeks' gestation is reported. Ultrasound examination showed a multilocular, large cystic mass (10 x 22 x 29 mm) on the left side of the fetus in the area of the lower chest and upper abdomen, without color flow imaging. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to evaluate the extent and the tissue characteristics of the lesion. Two months after birth the lymphangioma was surgically removed, following an infection and a rapid increase in size. The case is discussed, and a short review of the literature is reported.
