The objective of the case report was to present an easy and safe method for treatment of a large, persistent lymphocyst, through a procedure performed in an ambulatory setting. The patient diagnosed with large (1,800 ml), symptomatic (pains, renal insufficiency) lymphocyst after lymphadenectomy for cervical cancer, was successfully treated with percutaneous drainage (using vascular drains) and five sessions of sclerotherapy with 10% iodopovidone, performed in ambulatory settings. The method was minimally invasive, safe, and effective in management of symptomatic lymphocyst.
