Intestinal volvulus on mesenteric cysticum lymphangioma (CL) is rare in children. The clinical picture is not very suggestive. We report a case of intestinal volvulus on CL in a 7-year-old girl after an abdominal trauma. Resection and anastomosis were made. The confirmation diagnosis was done by anatomopathological examination. Early diagnosis of intra-abdominal CL will allow avoiding complication.
