Lymphangiomas are a rare condition, which are characterized by multiple cystic lesions of a single or multiple organs that are thought to originate from intrauterine atypically distended and connected lymphatic tissue. We describe a case of a 56 years old woman with the final diagnosis of a perinephric lymphangioma. With the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) it was possible to add valuable diagnostic information regarding the extent of the lymphangioma to surrounding tissue without the necessity to use additional ionizing radiation or nephrotoxic contrast agents.
