INTRODUCTION: Neck masses occurring in the neonatal period and early infancy consist of vascular tumors, vascular malformations, benign and malignant soft tissue tumors and other developmental lesions. Although some lesions can be diagnosed on clinical grounds, others can only be diagnosed by imaging. Beyond diagnosis, imaging plays a significant role in evaluating the location and extent of a lesion for possible intervention. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Clinical series descriptive study with a retrospective examination of neonates with masses of the neck...

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is anuncommon, benign, cutaneous disorder thatinvolves lymphatic dilatation to cause vesicularand papular lesions on the trunk, extremities, andanogenital areas. It may be a diagnostic challengewhen appearing in the anogenital region andoften is misdiagnosed and mistreated as infectiousetiologies, which include molluscum contagiosumand condylomata accuminata. We report a healthy40-year-old man with a six-month history of aneruption of multiple, asymptomatic, scrotal papulesthat were diagnosed as lymphangiomas...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of intralesional bleomycin injection in the management of lymphangiomas of the orbit. METHODS: This prospective noncomparative interventional case study included 13 patients with orbital lymphangiomas. Reconstituted bleomycin 1-5 ml (0.5 IU/ kg body weight; maximum, 15 IU/ml) was injected with 2% lignocaine in the lesion as seen on imaging or, in deeper lesions, under ultrasound guidance. Repeat injections were administered when required after every 4 weeks...

Using EUS, it is practicable to diagnose Subepithelial lesions (SEL) with originating layer, echo level, and internal echo pattern etc. Lipoma, lymphangioma, and cyst have characteristic features, therefore they have no need for EUS-FNA. Ectopic pancreases and glomus tumors, which are originated from 3(rd) and 4(th) layer, are frequently seen in the antrum. Although ectopic pancreases located in the fundus or body are large and originated from 3(rd) and 4(th) layer (thickening of 4(th) layer). Each Subepithelial lesions has each characteristic finding...

Cystic lymphangioma of the small bowel mesentery is a rare clinical entity, especially after childhood. Medical literature reveals a limited number of such cases presenting as acute abdomen due to bowel obstruction, small bowel volvulus and bleeding into the tumour. We present the management experience of an 18-year-old woman who presented with rapid onset diffuse peritonism and raised inflammatory markers. Computed tomography showed a mass in the small bowel mesentery with suspicion of segmental bowel ischaemia...

We describe the lymphoscintigraphy findings of a 25-year-old female patient who was undergoing presurgical workup for lymphangiomas of the vulva. She had a history of treatment for disseminated tuberculosis 6 years back and presented with herpetiform oozing vesicles in the external genitalia. Single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) confirmed cutaneous tracer accumulation in the vulval lesions and demonstrated the presence of densely calcified inguinal nodes secondary to healed tuberculosis as the etiology of secondary lymphangioma...

INTRODUCTION: Lymphatic malformations are benign anomalies derived from the abnormal development of lymphatic channels. Usually asymptomatic, they can cause compression on adjacent structures or present acute complications (bleeding or infection). Small asymptomatic lesions can be conservatively managed since the possibility of spontaneous regressions is described, while symptomatic lesions require active management. Less invasive therapeutic options are now preferred instead of surgery (sclerotherapy, laser therapy)...

Background : Lymphangiomas are tumours that are often found in the head and neck in children and, rarely, in adults. Among all lymphangiomas in adults, the small bowel mesentery type accounts for less than 1%. We aim to present a rare case of small bowel symptomatic cystic lymphangioma in an adult patient, as well as its diagnosis and subsequent treatment. Patient : An adult female who was admitted to the University Clinical Center Tuzla for surgery presented with abdominal pain, tenderness and swelling of the abdomen...

INTRODUCTION: It is rare for primary tumors to arise from the mesentery. Lymphangiomas appear as congenital malformations of the lymphatic system or benign neoplasms as a large, thin-walled, often multilocular cyst. Mesenteric infiltration is common and during surgical treatment, adjustment of structures such as the bowel and resection of the spleen may be required. Cystic mesotheliomas are rare, benign tumors that originate from the peritoneal mesothelium and are more common in women...

The axilla is often included on mammography, ultrasound (US), CT and MRI. Axillary masses can arise from any of the tissue components present in this region including breast parenchyma. Aetiologies include: lymphadenopathy due to inflammation, malignancy and degenerative causes; soft tissue tumours such as haemangioma, lymphangioma, peripheral nerve sheath tumours and lipomas; post-surgical complications such as seroma, lymphocoele and haematoma; lesions arising in accessory breast tissue such as fibroadenoma and carcinoma...

INTRODUCTION: Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (nTOS) is the most common manifestation of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), accounting for more than 95% of cases. It is usually caused by cervical ribs, anomalies in the scalene muscle anatomy or post-traumatic inflammatory changes causing compression of the brachial plexus. CASE PRESENTATION: We present an unusual case of nTOS caused by a cystic lymphangioma at the thoracic outlet, with only one case reported previously in the literature...

Splenic diseases are rare. Tumours of the spleen are classified as either benign or malignant. Primary benign tumours of the spleen are extremely rare, identified on surgery and autopsy, accounting for <0.007% of all splenic tumours. Splenic lymphangiomas are benign cystic tumours resulting from congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that appear as a single or multiple lesions of the spleen. It mainly affects children and is rarely manifested after the age of 20 years of age. We report a case of cystic lymphangioma of spleen in a 40-year-old woman admitted with a huge mass in the abdomen, which on imaging found to be a cystic mass arising from spleen...

Intraabdominal lymphangiomas are uncommon; additionally, those affecting the gastrointestinal tract are rare and account for less than 1% of cases. Intussusception caused by a cystic lymphangioma of the small bowel is extremely rare. The patient was a 20-year-old woman who visited our emergency room with a complaint of abdominal pain. A computed tomography image revealed ileo-ileal intussusception with a leading hypovascular mass measuring 1 cm in a diameter. Single-incision laparoscopic-assisted ileal resection was performed...

BACKGROUND: Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system with characteristic dilated endothelium-lined spaces. It is vulnerability to infection or chemical irritants cause spontaneous reduction in size and in some cases complete resolution. Intralesional injection of OK-432 or Picibanil (lyophilized incubation mixture of Group A Streptococcus pyogenes of human origin) is slowly gaining recognition as its safety and efficacy standards have shown to avoid complications resulting from surgical interventions...

Cystic hygroma or cystic lymphangioma is a congenital malformation of lymphatic origin. Their occurrence on the chest wall is very rare, and they progressively grow with age infiltrating into the local tissues, around muscle fibers and nerves, making them difficult and hazardous to remove. There are various treatment modalities of such lesion. Based on the literature surgical excision is the preferred treatment of choice in cystic hygroma because it gives a better cure rate compared to other modalities. We report a case successful excision of anterolateral chest wall cystic hygroma in a teenager in Hospital Serdang...

BACKGROUND: Intra-abdominal lymphangiomas are rare, benign tumors in adults. This report is the third documented case of a lymphangioma originating in the hepatoduodenal ligament that mimicked a simple liver cyst. CASE PRESENTATION: A 50-year-old woman was admitted with a cystic tumor in the right lobe of her liver and underwent laparoscopic excision of the cyst. Operative findings revealed that the cyst had developed in the hepatoduodenal ligament, not in the liver...
