Abstract
Lymphangiomatosis is a condition of lymphatic tissue malformation with multiple or diffuse involvement of soft tissues, visceral organs. Congenital abnormalities of the lymphatic system are very rare, and reports of congenital lymphangiomatosis are even fewer. We experienced a case of congenital lymphangiomatosis detected as edema of the right limb by prenatal ultrasonography and then diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging. We describe this case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Congenital lymphangiomatosis, Prenatal ultrasonography, Magnetic resonance imaging
