Abstract

SURGICAL RESECTION OF A LOWER-NECK CYSTIC LYMPHANGIOMA: CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Sorina Cosma, Daniela Duduman and Sorin Cimpean*

ABSTRACT

Lymphangioma, also called cystic hygroma, is a benign congenital malformation of lymphatic vessels seen almost exclusively in children under two years of age. A presentation to the adult age is very rare. A 62 years-old patient was admitted by the consultation for a mass in the right supraclavicular region. A complete surgical excision was performed. Cystic lymphangioma is described like a low-flow vascular malformation, which appear when the lymph sacs are separated from the venous drainage system. Lymphangioma of the neck and mediastinum is usually asymptomatic. Generally, due to the growth the patient may chest pain, cough, dyspnea, dysphagia, or vascular compression syndromes if the lesion reaches dimensions large enough to cause compression of adjacent structures Surgical excision by cervicotomy is the basis of the treatment that can assure the best chance of surgical excision.
