[Cervical lymphangiectasia--case report].
Rozhl Chir. 2002 Mar; 81(3):154-6.RC

Abstract

A case-report of a patient with paraesthesia of the left upper extremity caused by a tumor localized in the left supraclavicular area is presented. The patient underwent an operation. Two formations--a lipoma and cyst--were found. Both were removed and histologically examined. The diagnosis of lipoma and neck lymphangiectasia was made. On the third postoperative day the patient was discharged home with no more paraesthetic complaints. A check-up after three months did not reveal any complaints present before operation. In the paper the differential diagnosis of neck tumors with a view to resistance associated with the lymphatic system especially lymphangioma, lymphangiectasia and hygroma coli cysticum is discussed. Lymphangioma is a benign oncogenic affection of lymphatic vessels developing during the postnatal period of life. Lymphangiectasia is a congenital disease without proliferating activity. Hygroma coli cysticum is a congenital extensive multioccular formation localized in the neck area. All three affections are often incorrectly mistaken for each other. Histological examination is decisive for the correct diagnosis.
