Abstract: Background : Lymphangioma is a lymphatic malformation, a benign proliferation of lymph vessels. Case : We hereby present a case of eyelid lymphangioma of cavernous type in a twelve year old male patient. This is a very uncommon site for this type of lymphangioma. Key words : lymphangioma, eyelid, cavernous type DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/nepjoph.v3i2.5278 Ne pal J Ophthalmol 2011; 3(2): 196-198 ?

Abstract: Cavernous lymphangioma of the chest wall is a very rare disease entity, and only a few cases have ever been documented in the literature. Cases of recurrent cavernous lymphangioma after surgical excision of a cystic lymphangioma on the same side of the chest wall are quite uncommon. We report a case of a 10-year-old girl, with a giant cavernous lymphangioma of the left lateral chest wall extending into the axilla, who had undergone surgical excision of a cystic lymphangioma 9 years earlier.

Abstract: Introduction: Lymphangioma is a change of lymphatic vessels that frequently affects the head and neck region. Its occurrence at oral cavity is rare and it is most commonly identified at the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. At this location, it is clinically characterized as transparent and generally grouped vesicles, which can be red or purple. The deep lesions appear as nodular masses of variable color and superficial texture. It can be classified according to the size of vessels into three types: capillary, cavernous, and cystic lymphangioma. Several types of treatment have been suggested; and the most commonly used treatments are: surgical excision, application of carbon dioxide laser, cryotherapy using liquid nitrogen, and sclerosing agents. Objective and case report: To describe a case of oral lymphangioma diagnosed in a 17-year-old female patient. The lesion was presented as multiple vesicles of soft consistency with thin epithelial lining and color ranging from translucent to yellow-reddish, involving the soft palate and the left retromolar region. Incisional biopsy confirmed the hypothesis of cavernous lymphangioma. Patient was followed-up for one year without signs of lesion relapse. Conclusion: Through this clinical case report and literature review, this study emphasizes the relevance of the clinical and histopathological features that should be considered to confirm the clinical hypothesis and indicate the proper therapeutic for oral lymphangiomas.

Abstract: Complications of breast cancer metastasis may be the first manifestation of the disease. We report a rare case of left eyeptosis secondary to cavernous sinus syndrome in a 34-year-old lady due to refusal of proper medical treatment for metastaticbreast cancer. The delay in seeking medical treatment was attributed to her use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Abstract: Lymphangioma, a benign neoplasm of the lymphatic system, is common in children but rare in adults. Its clinical manifestations include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and a palpable mass. However, abdominal sonography or abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan can also incidentally reveal lymphangioma. A larger or symptomatic lymphangioma is treated with total resection to prevent recurrence, infection, torsion and enlargement. Although lymphangioma rarely becomes malignant, its prognosis is generally good. We report a cystic lymphangioma of the spleen and retroperitoneum, which was incidentally found in a 56-year-old man who was hospitalized due to a colon mass. Physical examination showed no specific findings. Abdominal CT revealed a 5.7 cm, non-enhanced multilobulated cystic mass with multiple septa in the spleen and a 10 cm lobulated cystic mass in the paraaortic area. Splenectomy and retroperitoneal resection of the cystic mass were conducted. The endothelium of splenic and retroperitoneal cyst was immunohistochemically stained with D2-40 antibody. The patient was finally diagnosed with splenic cystic and retroperitoneal cavernous lymphangioma.

Abstract: Lymphangioma usually occurs in children and usually involves the skin. Mesenteric lymphangioma is extremely rare in adults. Typically, lymphangioma appears on computed tomography (CT) as a lower attenuation of a cystic mass, however, some cases appear to be a solid mass. We describe the CT and 18F-FDG positron emission tomography/CT appearance in a case of jejunal and mesenteric cavernous lymphangiomatosis mimicking metastasis in an adult patient with rectal cancer.

Abstract: Pericardial cystic lymphangioma is a developmental malformation of the lymphatic system. We report a case of cystic pericardial lymphangioma in the anterior mediastinum in a 1-year-old male child. The lesion was diagnosed with multidetector computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Histopathological examination showed features of cystic lymphangioma.

Abstract: Lymphangioma is a benign tumor of the lymphatic system, histogenetic it is characterized by a congenital mesenchimal malformation affecting the wall of the lymphatic vessels. Intraabdominal lymphangioma is a rare disease, mesocolon localization being exceptional. Mesocolonic lymphangioma occurs extremely rare in adults. We report a case of lymphangioma of mesocolon in an adult patient. A 23-year old male was admitted with 1 month history of moderate progressive abdominal pain and palpable mesogastric mass. Abdominal ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) scanning demonstrated a cystic mass located in mesogastric area adherent with the transverse colon and the anterior abdominal wall. Complete excision of the cystic mass was performed. The histological findings were confident with lymphangioma. The postoperative period was uneventful. During a 6 month follow-up period the patient is free of disease recurrence.
