Introduction: Lymphangiomas are benign lesions of vascular origin that show lymphatic differentiation. They occur in many anatomic locations and may have a paediatric or adult clinical presentation. Case presentation: We herein describe the case of a 15-year old female who presented to the emergency of our hospital with abdominal distension and pain. At laparotomy, a giant multicystic tumor of jejunum was found which was leading to volvulus with gangrene of distal jejunum and whole of ileum. Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as lymphangioma arising from the wall of jejunum. Conclusion: Intra-abdominal lymphangiomas are rare and most commonly are mesenteric in origin but in our case it was arising from the wall of jejunum which is a very rare phenomenon.
