Lymphangioma is a benign tumor that is commonly found in children. Many lymphangiomas are congenital malfor- mations of the lymphatic system and they are considered to be lymphatic hamartomas. Lymphangiomas usually occur in the head, neck and axillary region, and they rarely occur in the gastrointestinal tract. Cystic lymphangioma is a rare cause of colonic submucosal masses. Lymphangioma of the colon has recently been diagnosed more frequently by performing colonoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography. However, only a few cases of colonic intussusception due to lymphangioma have been reported in the literature. We experienced a case of intussusception that was caused by cystic lymphangioma of the colon, and we report here on the findings. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2006;32:226⁣230)
