CT colonography in the visualisation of lymphangioma: a rare benign submucosal lesion
Keywords:benign, cystic lesion, intramural, sessile submucosal, lipoma, leiomyoma
Lymphangioma of the colon is a rare benign lesion. CT colonography (CTC), compared to optical colonoscopy, does not entail compression or probing of submucosal lesions. It does routinely include different patient positions, measurement of lesions and their HU values. There seems to be a gap in the CTC literature in terms of the features of this benign submucosal lesion. The 3D and 2D images of colon lymphangioma of two cases at screening CTC are discussed to illustrate the difference between it and other submucosal lesions such as lipoma.
