      Abstract

      A case of systemic lymphangiomatosis in a child is presented and the literature reviewed. Bipedal lymphangiography confirmed the diagnosis by demonstrating bony accumulation of contrast medium, whereas postlymphangiographic computed tomography gave a more accurate assessment of the full extent of bony and visceral involvement.
