A 23-year-old Ethiopian new immigrant presented with a giant lymphangioma extending from the posterior mediastinum through the retroperitoneum, ending as a herniated fluid-filled sac in the inguinal region. Chylous fluid aspirated from within the lymphangioma was cultured positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Considerable regression occurred following 6 months of antituberculous treatment.
