We present a case of retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma mimicking an adnexal cyst. The clinical presentation and prognosis of the disease, histological features with unique staining patterns, and differential diagnoses are discussed. A 60-year-old woman presented with acid reflux and a bulging left abdominal mass. Abdominal computed tomography revealed an 18-cm well-defined retroperitoneal tumor occupying the left side of her abdomen with descending colon and aorta displacement. The retroperitoneal tumor was resected; its diameter was approximately 18 cm with up to 2000 mL of the chylous fluid. Histopathological analysis, including immunohistochemical staining, confirmed the definitive diagnosis of retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma.
