Cystic hygroma of the neck: single center experience and literature review.
Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2017 Nov; 21(21):4918-4923.ER

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

Malformations of the lymphatic system are recognized as benign congenital tumors that affect infant and children in the perinatal era. In children, these abnormalities usually found in the neck and the axillary region, but they can present in other parts of the body such as mediastinum, pelvis, retroperitoneum as well as in solid organs (e.g., adrenal glands, pancreas, stomach). Our aim is to report our experience on cystic hygromas via two cases and review the literature.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Herein we present two cases of cystic hygroma, the first of female children and the second of a female adult patient respectively. Both of these patients underwent surgical excision of the masses.

RESULTS

After the procedure, both patients have recovered well, and no recurrence of the lesion has been noted during the follow-up period.

CONCLUSIONS

Surgical treatment remains the gold-standard treatment for these tumors, while other modalities have been used with mixed results.
