TORGA S, Selena; RAPOSO R, Lucía; YAGUE Z, Esther  y  VEGA M, Nataliz. Intestinal lymphangiomatosis with ectopic pancreatic tissue: A case report and literature review. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp. 70-72. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082012000200006.

Intestinal lymphangiomatosis is a rare malformation typically affecting children. Its etiology is unknown, although several hypotheses have been proposed. We present a case of intestinal lymphangiomatosis with ectopic pancreatic tissue of the mesentery, an association not previously described in literature. We emphasize the fact that this entity has sometimes been associated with other intra-abdominal malformations, even conditions undescribed in scientific literature. It must be considered the first differential diagnosis for pediatric patients with radiological evidence of mesenteric cystic lesions, subsequently confirmed by pathological examination.
