Colonic Lymphangiomatosis Associated with Protein-Losing Enteropathy


Most lymphangiomas are considered to be lymph vessel anomalies. They can occur anywhere in the body and only rarely affect the intestinal tract. However, as endoscopic examination has become more widespread, gastrointestinal lymphangiomas have been reported more frequently. The overwhelming majority of lymphangiomas are solitary; only several cases of multiple lymphangiomas of the colon have been reported so far (1–3). Here we report multiple colonic and abdominal lymphangiomas in a young Korean woman who presented with protein-losing enteropathy.
