Lymphangioma is a rare benign neoplasm of the lymphatic system comprised of multiple cystic spaces lined with endothelium. It may arise in any part of the body. Ovarian localisation is exceptional and only few cases have been documented to date. We report a case of a menopausal woman presented for chronic lower abdominal pain. Preoperative diagnosis of a suspected cystic mass in the right ovary was made on the basis of radiological imaging. Intraoperative findings were a large cystic mass originating from the right ovary which was removed and sent for frozen section examination confirming the diagnosis of an ovarian cystic lymphangiomas.
