The lymphangioma accounts for the 6 % of the benign tumors and its more frequent location is the cervical region, followed by the axilla in the 95 % of cases. Only the 5 % is located in other site including the abdominal ones accounting for the 2 and the 5 % and the more frequent are those of mesentery. This is the case of a patient aged 45 diagnosed with dysfunctional metrorrhagia that despite the hormonal treatment increased its intensity. A diagnostic curettage was made whose result was an adenomatous hyperplasia with a slight atypia prescribing an abdominal hysterectomy carried out without problem. During this intervention a yeyunal mesenteric tumor was removed with a definitive histological diagnosis of mesenteric lymphangioma.
