Lymphangiomas are benign malformations that represent hamartoma of malformed lymphatics and are composed of cystically dilated lymphatic channels which do not communicate or drain into other lymphatic channels or veins leading to accumulation of lymph. They are congenital malformations with rare occurrence in oral cavity within which tongue dorsum is the most affected site. Venous malformations are often difficult to differentiate from lymphatic malformations leading to the development of several lymphatic markers like D2-40 which seems to be useful for distinguishing vascular from lymphatic vessels...

A G2L2 33-year-old woman presented to our clinic with large verrucous warty masses in labia major, perinea and the end portion of her spine measuring about 15 × 7, 9 × 7 and 8 × 8 cm, which had been enlarged following puberty and pregnancy. Her right upper and left lower limbs had gross congenital lymphedema. The masses were removed by superficial partial vulvectomy with a qualified margin and repaired without skin graft. Pathology report showed lymphangioma circumscriptum. Several months of follow up revealed normal healing and no recurrence...

We describe a rare case of renal lymphangioma presenting as a focal unilateral multicystic renal mass and document the first reported use of triparametric ultrasound (B-mode, Doppler, and contrast-enhanced ultrasound) in its diagnosis and discrimination from other focal multicystic lesions. Renal lymphangiomas are rare, benign, typically developmental lesions composed of cystic dilatation of the lymphatic ducts, usually occurring bilaterally as perinephric collections or parapelvic cysts mimicking hydronephrosis...

Lymphangioma is a benign mass lesion characterized by numerous thin-walled lymphatic spaces that usually manifests in the first few years of life. They generally appear in the head, neck and axillary regions. Abdominal lymphangiomas have been reported however they are rare 5%. The small bowel mesentery lymphangioma has been described in <1%. Lymphangiomas may remain asymptomatic or present with complications depending on the size and location of the lesion. We present a case of a 71-year-old female, she presented to the emergency with acute abdomen and a palpable mass in the lower abdomen...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of bleomycin as a primary mode of nonsurgical treatment in lymphangiomas of head and neck and study their complications. This is a prospective study of 8 patients diagnosed with lymphangioma of head and neck presenting to ENT department of Tata main Hospital from December 2014 to January 2017. They were clinically and radiologically evaluated and treated with intralesional injection of bleomycin diluted in normal saline. Complete resolution was seen in 62.5% (5/8) of patients, 25% (2/8) had good response while 12...

Microcystic lymphatic malformations are difficult to treat surgically, especially when located in the orbital apex. Recently, pharmacologic inhibition of the mTOR pathway by sirolimus was reported as a safe and efficacious treatment option for lymphatic malformations (also known as lymphangiomas). We report the case of a young male patient in which a unilateral, retrobulbar lymphatic malformation regressed to a large extent under treatment with 1 mg sirolimus given orally twice a day over a period of six months...

Lymphangiectasias, or acquired lymphangiomas, are rare in the oral cavity, more typically occurring on the skin or the genital area and, to our knowledge, have not been reported previously in association with Crohn's disease. Lymphangiectasias can occur at any age and develop secondary to chronic obstruction of the lymphatics. This differentiates them from congenital lymphangiomas, which are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. We present 2 cases of oral lymphangiectasias associated with Crohn's disease, one of which was treated successfully with cryotherapy...

RATIONALE: Lymphatic malformations (LMs) are rare and benign anomalies resulting from the defective embryological development of the primordial lymphatic structures. Due to their permeative growth throughout all tissue layers, treatment is often challenging. Small asymptomatic lesions can be conservatively managed, while symptomatic lesions require active management. Surgery has been historically considered the treatment of choice, but today less invasive therapeutic options are preferred (sclerotherapy, laser therapy, oral medications)...

Mesenteric lymphatic malformations are rare benign tumors that are most commonly found in children. The presentation of these tumors can be variable. It has been suggested that mesenteric lymphatic malformations are congenital; however, there is evidence that their size may be increased by infection. A 3-year 10-month-old boy presented with rhinorrhea and cough followed by acute abdominal pain. Ultrasonography revealed a lobulated mass in the lower abdomen. Computerized tomography scan of the abdomen diagnosed an inflamed appendix with perforation...

Lymphangiomas are rare malformations of the lymphatic system and can often be found in the neck region, where its proximity to the brachial plexus may cause compressive neuropathy and possible iatrogenic injuries during dissection. We report 4 cases of lymphangiomas with compression of the brachial plexus that were successfully removed without permanent nerve injuries and present a literature review of the preoperative approach and surgical techniques. A preoperative multidisciplinary approach can help surgeons predict what they may encounter during the surgery...

BACKGROUND: Lymphangioma of the mediastinum is a rare benign tumor, and most of the cases are treated by a surgical approach. CASE PRESENTATION: This work reports the case of a 62-year-old female with a large lymphangioma extending from her neck to her abdomen with dysphagia, dyspnea, and cough for 2 months. Because of the location of the mass, only bilateral excision could remove the multiloculated cyst completely. However, the patient's overall physical condition was very poor, and we thought she could not tolerate the bilateral surgery...

Small bowel lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor of the lymphatic system, characterized by the presence of dilated lymphatic spaces and significant gastrointestinal bleeding. Small bowel lymphangiomas are rare in adults and case reports are few. Lymphangiomas in the jejunum or ileum are extremely rare and account for less than 1% of all lymphangiomas. The case reported herein is of an older patient (70-year-old male) with melena and chronic anemia (hemoglobin count < 5 g/dL) who had small-sized multiple lymphangiomas in his small bowel (jejunum)...

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is considered a superficial variant of lymphangioma with characteristic small lymphatic channels. Diagnosis is routinely made through histopathology in addition to immunostaining. An unusual case of LC presenting as a painless overgrowth of the tongue in a middle-aged male is reported with emphasis on the clinical and histopathological differential diagnosis.

Mini-invasive surgery is more and more integrated in pediatric surgery. The robotic-assisted surgery brought new advantages from which the patient and the surgeon could benefit compared to laparoscopy. Its use in oncological surgery is still controversial. 12 robotic-assisted tumor resections with the da Vinci Surgical Robot (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA) were attempted in 11 children (mean age 7.65 years; age range 0.75-16.75 years; mean weight 30.3 kg; weight range 8.6-62 kg) in two centers. Mean total operative time was 145 min (range 72-263 min)...
