Lymphangiomatous macroglossia associated with extensive cervicomediastinal cystic hygromas.
J Chin Med Assoc. 2013 Nov; 76(11):653-6.JC

Abstract

Children with lymphangiomatous macroglossia often have difficulty eating and talking, and their airways may be compromised because of bleeding and infection, especially when extensive cervicomediastinal cystic hygromas are present. We report a case of lymphangiomatous macroglossia associated with extensive cystic hygromas in the cervicomediastinal region. The 3-year-old girl was treated with anterior wedge reduction of the tongue, needle aspiration of the cervicomediastinal cystic hygromas, and systemic steroids and antibiotics. The extensive cystic cervicomediastinal hygromas spontaneously regressed, and further surgery was not needed until 4 years later. Surprisingly, subtotal or partial lymphatic malformation removal improved the complicated lymphatic malformation.
