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: 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: purpose: fluctuating tumours of the scrotal and penile basis can be caused by benign lymphangiomas. these rare malformations can preferently be seen in children. case report: we report about a 10 year old boy, who was presented in our department with a bluish, indolent, 4x2 cm sized, fluctuating tumor of the scrotum and penile basis. magnetic resonance imaging could demonstrate the whole anatomic extension of the sonographically hypoechoic lesion. operative removal of the tumour was performed without complication. histologically, the specimen was diagnosed as cavernous lymphangioma. to date, there is no sign of recurrence (follow-up period: 6 months). conclusion: a cavernous lymphangioma of the scrotum or penis is very uncommon. we report, to the best of our knowledge, the 2nd case reported in literature. even lymphangiomas with other histological features rarely affect this region. lymphangiomas are benign tumours of lymphatic vessels. the surrounding tissue sometimes shows a perifocal inflammation and scarification. about 50% of the cases are considered congenital. 9/10 lymphangiomas become obvious during the first 2 postnatal years. therapy of choice is the complete excision.

Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology , 2008,
Abstract: Cystic hygroma is a benign congenital malformation of the lymphatic system that occurs in infants or children younger than 2 years. Herein, we present a case of recurrent cystic hygroma in a 22-year-old woman. History revealed that she had a similar lesion in the left submandibular region when she was 2 years old and in the thyroid region seven years back. This case has been reported for its unusual occurrence in an adult, showing recurrences at different sites and presence of calcification.

Abstract: Introduction: Retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor of the retroperitoneal lymphatics that usually manifests in infancy. It is worth to Report of unexpected presentation especially in Adult. Case Presentation: An adult patient with Left Lower abdominal was referred to our hospital. Abdominal ultra-sonography revealed a large, multilocular, cystic mass with an obscure margin. CT of the abdomen showed a large homogeneous mass. Laparoscopy revealed a huge retroperitoneal cystic lymphangioma confirmed by histopathology. Conclusion: Adult cyst lymphangioma is the rare benign tumor with unclear intra abdominal manifestation. In our report the retroperitoneum was the rare location of this tumor.

Abstract: the lymphangioma is a beningn, hamartomatous tumor of the lymphatic system. it is usually found in the head and neck region and is widely regarded as a developmental lesion rather than a true neoplasia. most lymphangiomas are present at birth (60%), and by the age of 2 years 80% to 90% are present. when lymphangioma occurs in the mouth, the anterior two thirds of the tongue is the most commonly affected region. the isolated location of the lesion in the lower lip and the age of the patient are unusual; few cases have been reported in the literature.
Cavernous Hemangioma of the Nasal Cavity  [PDF]

Open Journal of Medical Imaging (OJMI) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojmi.2011.12007
Abstract: A 22 year old six month pregnant female presented with right eye tearing, proptosis and nasal congestion. CT revealed a large right nasal cavity mass with involvement of the ethmoids, right maxillary sinus, lamina papyracea, cribriform plate and nasal septum. There was significant remodeling of the right cribriform plate with mild extra-axial intracranial and mild intraorbital extension. Transnasal endoscopic excision confirming the diagnosis of cavernous hemangioma of the nasal cavity. Hemangiomas are benign slow-growing vascular neoplasms classified as capillary, cavernous or mixed. Hemangiomas of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are very rare with only a few reported cases. The occurrence and growth of these lesions during pregnancy may be related to increased blood volume or hormonal factors. The most common therapeutic option is complete surgical resection via transnasal endoscopic approach. Pre-operative embolization may be utilized in some cases to decrease the risk of intraoperative bleeding.
The Clinical Anatomy of the Cavernous Sinus  [PDF]

Abstract: Introduction: The cavernous sinus (CS) is a very important concept because it is not only interesting to anatomical theory but also useful to clinical medicine, especially in the field of surgery. This paper described the microsurgical anatomy of the CS with special attention to its concept that the CS was really venous sinus or plexus. Materials and Methods: Fifty CSs from 25 Chinese adult cadaver heads fixed in 10% methanal, whose artery and vein were injected with red and blue latex, respectively, dissected stepwise under the operating microscope. Results: Asymmetric and nonintegral blue latex distributed in the cavity of the CS to form a retina with various diameters and repeatedly diverged and converged were observed under the surgical microscope with magnification 5 - 25, after the lateral wall of the CS was opened by maxillary approach. Measurement of sinus included length, diameter and triangular structure of the CS. It is very important to understand the microsurgical anatomy of the CS for neurosurgeons. Conclusion: The CS was venous plexus rather than sinus. The lateral wall of the sinus had two layers, and the lateral cavity of the sinus really did exist even though it was very small. The triangles where maxillary approach passed were more important for neurosurgeons.

Abstract: Introduction: Cervical cystic lymphangiomas are rare benign dysembryoplastic tumors of lymphatic origin. Its severity in the child is due on one hand to their fast evolution and the compression of the way aerodigestive and on the other hand, by the classical difficulty of their excision. The purpose of this work was to report a case of giant cervical cystic lymphangioma in a child to discuss the difficulties associated with its management in our context. Observation: This was a 3-year-old female child who was admitted to the ENT department of CHU “Luxembourg” for right lateral cervical swelling. The clinical examination had noted a large anterior-latero cervical swelling of soft, renitent, painless palpation, movable in relation to the superficial and deep plane, measuring about 20 cm × 17 cm, the skin was healthy. It wasn’t particularity to the rest of the physical examination. The diagnosis of giant cervical cystic lymphangioma was discussed. Thorough excision of the swelling by right lateral cervicotomy was performed. Anatomopathological examination of the operative specimen confirmed the diagnosis. The postoperative course was simple and the evolution was favorable. Conclusion: Cervical cystic lymphangiomas are rare. Their management involves surgery, with short and long-term post-operative outcomes are often excellent.

Abstract: Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that account for about 5% of all benign tumors in infants and children.1 The most common sites are the neck and axilla, which account for 95% of cases.2 Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are quite rare, and can arise from either the retroperitoneum, gastrointestinal tract, or the mesentery of the abdominal viscera.3 The presenting symptoms are painless abdominal distension, a palpable mass, or secondary complications in the abdomen such as intestinal obstruction, volvulus, intestinal infarction, or bleeding.4 Typically diagnosed during childhood, these tumors prompt surgical intervention. We describe an atypical case of an abdominal cystic lymphangioma, which did not manifest until adulthood, with atypical symptoms of a rapidly expanding and symptomatic mass.
