Lymphangioma is a rare, benign mesenchymal neoplasm, which is characterized by numerous intercommunicating cystic spaces containing lymphatic fluid. It is considered a congenital disease resulting from the obstruction of regional lymph drainage during the developmental period. Lymphangioma frequently occurs in the cervical neck and axilla, also in the retroperitoneum, mediastinum, mesentery, omentum, colon, and pelvis, rarely in the perirenal space. These tumors usually present in childhood, but infrequently, these also present in adults...

Fibroepithelial polyp (FEP) and lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) of the vulva are rare diseases that occur generally in young to middle-aged women. The pathogenesis of FEP is not clearly understood. Several previous cases have suggested that a hormonal influence may be a predisposing condition for developing FEP with or without chronic inflammation. A 68-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with a history of multiple raised lesions on the vulva with a 1-year duration. Additionally, a pedunculated mass had appeared 6 months earlier in the left lower labia minora...

Cystic lymphangioma of small bowel mesentery is rare with clinical features ranging from an asymptomatic abdominal lump to acute intestinal obstruction. We discuss two cases of lymphangioma of small bowel mesentery who presented to us as acute intestinal obstruction. In the first case exploratory laparotomy revealed a large multicystic lesion arising from small bowel mesentery just distal to the duodenojejunal junction having multiple small cysts filled with milky white fluid. The involved region of the bowel was excised...

Verrucous hemangioma is an uncommon congenital vascular malformation, which may clinically masquerade angiokeratoma, lymphangioma circumscriptum, or malignant melanoma. Differentiation is essential owing to varied therapeutic and prognostic implications. We present a rare case of multiple verrucous hemangiomas in a teenage girl who presented with multiple warty lesions over the dorsal aspect of the left foot since birth. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan was suggestive of a vascular malformation, and skin biopsy showed ectatic blood vessels extending from the papillary dermis into the subcutaneous tissue, diagnostic of verrucous hemangioma...

Lymphedema, a rare debilitating disorder usually involving limbs. For lymphedema involving the genitalia, its terminology remains imprecise and not consensual. So, lymphangiectasia simply means dilatation of lymphatic vessels. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND: Neonatal tumors are different from tumors of the older children and knowledge gained from treating older children can not be extrapolated to neonates. Neonates have immature physiology and their haematopoietic and immune systems are not fully developed and the response to therapy is unpredictable. Hence it is imperative to study these tumors as separate entity. The aim of this study is to analyse this rare set of tumors in terms of their incidence, clinical features and management...

INTRODUCTION: Ectopic cervical thymus (ECT) is a rare embryological abnormality in children. It can be revealed by a compressive neck mass mistaken for a malignant tumor. Through a new case of ECT, we review the embryopathogenesis, diagnostic difficulties and therapeutic features. CLINICAL OBSERVATION: A 19-month-old girl presented a right cervical mass that quickly increased in size, causing intermittent dyspnea. The physical examination objectified a 6-cm, soft and compressible, painless right cervical tumefaction, extending from the mastoid area to the ipsilateral supraclavicular fossa...

BACKGROUND: Congenital cystic lymphangiomas are benign malformations due to a developmental disorder of lymphatic vessels. Besides surgical excision, sclerosant therapy of these lesions by intracavitary injection of OK-432 (Picibanil®), a lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes, is a common therapeutical option. For an appropriate application of OK-432, a detailed knowledge about the structure and composition of the congenital cystic lymphangioma is essential. SonoVue® is a commercially available contrast agent commonly used in sonography by intravenous and intracavitary application...

Thymopharyngeal duct cyst is one of the most uncommon benign cervical lesions encountered in the paediatric population. Due to its rarity, it almost always escapes a correct preoperative diagnosis and is usually misdiagnosed as a branchial cyst or lymphangioma. Furthermore, although located at the neck it may present with retrosternal or mediastinal extension. In this case report here we present a case of a young boy with a right cervical mass, diagnosis of thymopharyngeal duct cyst was confirmed during histopathological examination of the excised specimen...

REVIEW
A Agaimy, H Iro, J Zenk
Salivary gland tumors and tumor-like lesions in the pediatric population are uncommon. They comprise a heterogeneous group of infectious/inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. Pediatric salivary neoplasms include benign tumors of mesenchymal or epithelial origin as well as malignancies of epithelial (carcinomas), mesenchymal (sarcoma) or hematolymphoid (lymphoma) derivation. Infectious/inflammatory conditions and hematolymphoid malignancies may represent either genuine parenchymal pathology or conditions involving intraglandular lymph nodes of the parotid glands (intraglandular lymphadenopathy and intraglandular nodal lymphomas)...

Oral foregut duplication cysts are extremely rare lesions with approximately 57 cases reported. They are congenital cysts, located in the anterior or ventral tongue, and occur predominantly in males. They are lined by one or more types of epithelia which is limited to gastric, intestinal or respiratory epithelium. The differential diagnosis includes lymphangioma, hemangioma, ranula, epidermoid cyst, teratoma and less likely a malignant process.

Lymphatic malformations, also known as lymphangiomas or cystic hygromas, are benign masses that typically affect newborns and infants and involve the head and neck regions. They are, however, rare in adults and even rarer in the axillary region. Although surgery is considered to be the treatment of choice, we present a rare case of a recurrent cystic hygroma 32 years after the first surgical operation. Due to the cosmetic concerns and the risks of a surgical approach, non-surgical therapy with percutaneous sclerosants was performed, with a good outcome after a 2-year follow-up period...

PURPOSE: To report the patient characteristics and treatment outcomes in 12 cases of orbital lymphangioma. METHODS: In this study, orbital lymphangioma was diagnosed based on clinical, radiologic (computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging), and histologic findings when possible. Patients whose vision was not compromised by orbital lymphangioma, or that did not have increased intraocular pressure (IOP), received oral corticosteroids. Orbital lymphangioma that affected vision or increased IOP was treated by surgery, which included aspiration of blood or partial resection with or without injection of a sclerosant...

Various forms of vascular lesion affect the head and neck region. The head and neck vascular lesions are classified into neoplasms and malformations. Neoplasm presents either as hemangioma or lymphangioma; neoplasm usually presents in young age compared with vascular malformation. A 9-year-old female patient presented to the outpatient clinic referred from the department of pedodontics after extraction of a right mandibular second deciduous molar. Extraction was done by dental GP in outpatient clinic. Massive bleeding followed the extraction...
