Abstract

Cystic hygroma (lymphangioma) is a benign congenital malformation of the lymphatic system that occurs as a result of sequestration or obstruction of developing lymphatic vessels. Most are seen in the head and neck region (75–80%) and is usually discovered in infant or children younger than two years of age. Fewer than 150 cases of adult lymphangioma have been reported in the literature.
