Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. These lesions occur most often in the head and neck area, and their treatment continues to be a challenge. Fortunately, a number of advances have occurred in the diagnosis and management of lymphatic malformations in the past decade. The purpose of this article is to clarify the embryology, pathogenesis, histopathology, and classification of these lesions, as well as to describe their various forms of clinical presentation.

TLDR
The case further emphasizes the need to consider lymphangioma in the differential diagnosis of an oropharyngeal mass and the multiple-angle examination and treatment plan used. Expand
Successful resection of lymphangioma of the neck and mediastinum presenting as stridor in a 12 year old child
TLDR
The case of a 12 year old child who presented with a cervical and mediastinal cystic hygroma that had progressed to such a space occupying nature as to cause the shifting of the trachea is reported, suggesting the necessity of considering cystic lymphangioma in the differential diagnosis of lateral neck masses and use of adequate imaging to substantiate the preoperative diagnosis.

Pediatric Lymphangiomas of the Head and Neck

All cases of lymphangiomas of the head and neck region in children seen at this institution between 1986 and 1996 are reviewed and a staging system based on functional deficit, cosmetic changes, sites of involvement, and age at diagnosis is proposed. Expand

Lymphangioma. An otolaryngologic perspective.
TLDR
Although lymphangiomas are slow growing, early removal was preferable: recurrences increased as the time interval between tumor identification and surgical intervention lengthened and size fluctuation with a history of infection, another unfavorable prognostic factor, also increased recurrence rate.

Pediatric head and neck lesions.
TLDR
Congenital lesions typically require excision, although hemangiomas usually resolve spontaneously, and chronic lymphardenitis remains a diagnostic challenge and must be differentiated from malignancy. Expand

TLDR
In the present series, spontaneous regression was infrequent and was seen more often with recurrent lesions, and there were fewer recurrences after macroscopically complete excision. Expand
