[Cervical cystic hygroma] ].HNO. 2002 Nov; 50(11):1014-6.HNO
We report the case of a 27-year-old patient suffering from a cystic hygroma of unknown etiology. She presented with an asymptomatic fluctuant mass in the right posterior triangle of the neck. NMR-scans revealed a cystic tumor in the above-mentioned area without enhancement after administration of gadolinium. The cystic hygroma was surgically excised. Three and six months after surgery there was no sign of recurrence. By means of the presented case report and review of literature we discuss diagnosis and treatment of cystic hygromas.
