Lymphangiomas are rare benign neoplasms of malformative origin. Cystic lymphangioma is a particular kind of lesion that can also be located in viscera and vessels. The most frequent affected sites are represented by neck and armpit, while retroperitoneal area is unusual. The present case reports about a Kenyan young boy presenting a cystic lymphangioma affecting either his left abdomen or the left retroperitoneal area, also with organ involvement, such as the spleen and left kidney. The patient was not submitted to surgery or other treatment as he did not have complications. He is currently in follow-up.
