Lymphoceles occur after surgical interventions in areas with an extensive lymphatic network due to injury to the large lymphatic vessels. Recurrent lymphoceles are treated percutaneously by using sclerotherapy, with surgery reserved for cases of failed sclerotherapy. In this case report, the authors describe a minimally invasive technique using lymphangiography and percutaneous imaging-guided lymphatic ligation of the feeding lymphatic vessel of a persistent lymphocele refractory to the sclerotherapy.
