Lymphangioma is an uncommon benign lesion that usually occurs during childhood. Its presentation in the abdomen is rare. Its occurrence at the omentum, with complication of torsion, is even rarer. This report describes a 4-year-old boy who presented with abdominal pain and fever. Subsequent imaging, operative, and histological findings revealed omental lymphangioma with torsion.
