Abstract

Lymphangioma involving the ovary is an extremely rare tumor. There are only 8 cases documented in the literature. This report describes a case of peritoneal lymphangiomatosis which presented as an apparent ovarian tumor and rapidly recurred and spread into adjacent and distant peritoneal organs following oophorectomy. We will comment on its complete response to irradiation treatment and review the literature.
