Cystic lymphangiomas are rare tumours that can mimic various causes of acute abdomen including appendicitis. They exhibit variations in two characteristics on presentation: they can arise from a wide range of organs including various intra-abdominal structures and they can have a wide variation in size on presentation. We report a case of a gigantic cystic lymphangioma presenting as an acute abdomen closely mimicking acute appendicitis and we conduct a review of the relevant literature.
