Lymphangioma of the stomach is known to be extremely rare, benign tumor, reported only 13 cases now, worldwidely, The lesions are soft, sponge like, and pinkish colored and filled with watery fluid exudates. The histologic examination reveals that lymphangiomas are composed of endothelium-lined spaces that contain a eosinophilic protein-rich fluid. They usually present as polypoid lesions because they are originated from submucosal layer. By endoscopy, they appear as smooth, soft, polypoid submucosal mass. The endoscopic ultrasonographic findings of gastric lyrnphangioma were cystic mass with multi-septation originated from submucosal layer of the stomach. Recently, We experienced a case of lymphangioma associated with early gastric cancer of the stomach. So we report this case with brief review of world literature.
