Abstract

Crying infants are one of the most frequent reasons within the pediatric emergency consultation. Most cases are self-limiting but we must pay special attention to the alarm signs/symptoms to perform additional tests. We report the case of a one-month-old infant who presents bloating and rejects feeding. The imaging test shows a multicystic mass in the abdomen. Laparotomy revealed a lymphatic malformation in the middle ileum and pathology confirmed mesenteric cystic lymphangioma.
