[Multiple lymphatic cervical cysts].Otolaryngol Pol. 1994; 48(1):86-91.OP
Authors described a case of 60 year old woman with multiple lateral neck cysts. Four cysts, 5 x 4 x 3 cm and 3 x 2 x 2 cm in diameter, were located in the supraclavicular region of lateral neck triangle. During histopathological studies of postoperative specimens a cystic hygroma diagnosis was established. The fact, that cystic lymphangioma occurred in an adult woman, was interesting. The authors stress the necessity of preoperative evaluation of tumor size in view of the possibility of its penetration into the thorax. The CT examination may be useful in these cases.
