  • BACKGROUND: Cavernous lymphangioma is a form of benign congenital abnormality grouped under lymphatic malformations, which can clinically manifest as a cystic tumor.
  • Most cases are diagnosed in children under the age of 2, and occasionally the diagnosis is made in utero.
  • CASE: We present the case of a 29-year-old primigravid woman with an axillary cavernous lymphangioma which rapidly increased in size during pregnancy, and describe the treatment plan in this unusual situation.
  • CONCLUSION: The treatment of a large lymphangioma during pregnancy has to be well planned, considering the welfare of the mother and baby.
  • We discuss the possible pathomechanisms for the growth of lymphangioma during pregnancy with the overproduction of cytokines such as vascular endothelial growth factor.

  • The present retrospective study aims to define the symptoms, complications and differences noted between adults and children suffering from abdominal cystic lymphangioma; it is based on patients who underwent surgery for this condition at the Geneva University Hospital.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Since 1995, 16 patients (9 adults and 7 children) were surgically treated for abdominal cystic lymphangioma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A total surgical excision, if feasible without a major sacrifice of adjacent organs, seems to be the best therapeutic option to minimize the risk of recurrence of symptomatic abdominal cystic lymphangiomas.
  • In our clinical experience, the presentation and evolution of the abdominal cystic lymphangioma seemed to be similar in adults and children.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The patient was finally diagnosed with splenic cystic and retroperitoneal cavernous lymphangioma.

  • Lymphangioma of the ovary is rare; we have identified only 13 reports in a 50-year literature survey (PubMed 1959-2009).
  • Typically, lymphangiomas are slow-growing tumors that remain asymptomatic for a long time.
  • Complete removal of a cystic lymphangioma was successfully performed at laparoscopy.

  • At histology, the final diagnosis was submucosal lymphangioma.
  • The lymphangioma is a benign neoplastic lesion of the lymphatic system that usually is present in infancy and is found, in the majority of the patients, in the subcutaneous tissue outside the abdomen.
  • The intrabdominal site accounts for less than 1% of the cases, and often occurs in the mesentery of the small bowel.
  • Finding the lesion in the submucosa of the jejunum in an adult is very rare.
  • Moreover, the choice of the laparoscopic video-assisted technique, confirming the expected site of the lesion, with a ''minimal'' small bowel resection, made the postoperative course of the patient very short and uneventful.

  • [Transliterated title] Traitement chirurgical des lymphangiomes orbitaires diffus de l'adulte: à propos de deux cas.
  • PURPOSE: Orbital lymphangioma is a rare vascular malformation; it is a benign but severe anomaly because of its infiltrative, diffuse, and hemorrhagic nature, and its high morbidity rate.
  • The authors report their surgical experience concerning two cases of diffuse orbital lymphangioma whose diagnosis was established in adulthood and whose surgical treatment was successful.
  • CASE REPORTS: Two patients presented with adult orbital lymphangioma.
  • DISCUSSION: The surgical treatment of orbital lymphangiomas is challenging because of their infiltrative nature.
  • CONCLUSION: Diffuse orbital lymphangiomas can be treated successfully with a subtotal resection without clinical recurrence in the short term.
  • These results are promising because they demonstrate that many orbital lymphangiomas can benefit from surgical treatment with an excellent esthetic and functional result.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intrauterine treatment of large fetal neck lymphangioma with OK-432.
  • Lymphangiomas are benign vascular malformations of the lymphatic system and most commonly present in the neck area.
  • Large lymphangiomas may compress and/or displace the larynx, trachea and esophagus and cause serious respiratory and feeding problems in neonates.
  • As this procedure has certain risks for both the neonate and mother, the introduction of a safer method is justified.
  • The use of OK-432, as a sclerosing agent, has shown positive results in several published cases of cystic hygroma, but there is no study about the prenatal use of this agent in the treatment of lymphangioma.
  • The aim of this study was to present our experience with intrauterine intralesional injection of OK-432 in the treatment of neck lymphangiomas.
  • Two cases of large multicystic neck lymphangiomas that were closely situated to the fetal airway were treated by single intralesional injection of OK-432.
  • This report suggests that prenatal intralesional injection of OK-432 might be a safe and effective treatment in selected cases with large fetal neck lymphangiomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mesenteric cystic lymphangioma: a congenital and an acquired anomaly? Two cases and a review of the literature.
  • Mesenteric cystic lymphangioma is an uncommon benign abdominal mass.
  • Two cases of mesenteric cystic lymphangioma are presented, both in combination with malrotation and intermittent volvulus.
  • Both mesenteric cystic lymphangiomas were located near the duodenojejunal junction, the usual area of torsion in case of a volvulus.
  • These findings suggest that mesenteric cystic lymphangioma could have evolved as a consequence of chronic intermittent volvulus.
  • We hypothesize that in patients with malrotation and volvulus, mesenteric cystic lymphangioma may be regarded as an acquired anomaly.

  • [Title] Cervical lymphangioma: An acquired idiopathic presentation in an adult.
  • Lymphangioma is an uncommon benign pathology, usually reported in children and rarely in adults.
  • In the past, the definitive diagnosis was made intraoperatively and was usually an unexpected finding.
  • However, with today's modern imaging technologies, such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, the diagnosis can be assumed before intervention, even though the final diagnosis still can be reached only via histopathologic examination.
  • We report a case of cervical lymphangioma of unknown etiology in an 18-year-old man and discuss the presentation, diagnosis, and management of this lesion.

  • Although abdominal lymphangiomas are rare, they are most commonly reported in adults.
  • Lymphatic malformation with blockage of the lymphatic flow is the most common etiology leading to the formation of lymphangiomas.
  • Cystic lymphangiomas should always be included in the differential diagnosis of abdominal masses which present with mass effect signs and symptoms.
  • CASE REPORT: We herein report the case of a 43-year-old man with a cystic lymphangioma detected in the head of the pancreas and describe the surgical procedure utilized as the therapeutic medium.

  • Solitary lymphangioma of the spleen is an extremely rare, benign vasoformative tumour that typically shows no notable enhancement on imaging studies.
  • We report a case in which MR images showed diffuse and prolonged enhancement of a splenic mass.
  • On histological correlation, splenic lymphangiomas with abundant fibrous stroma may account for this specific enhancing pattern.

  • BACKGROUND: Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a benign lesion of lymphatic origin.
  • METHODS: We present 12 cases, and compare lesions in patients with Crohn's disease and those associated with pelvic radiation.
  • Thirty-three percent of the patients had Crohn's disease, 58% had radiation therapy and 9% had no significant medical history.
  • Four of twelve patients, all with radiation-associated lesions, experienced disease progression necessitating additional surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with LC secondary to radiation, when compared to those with Crohn's disease, were 10 years younger, more likely to have associated co-morbidities, and frequently experienced disease progression needing additional surgeries.

  • Lymphangiomas are rare, benign tumors of the lymphatic system, usually present in children aged 5 years and younger.
  • Because they are asymptomatic until the mass enlarges to cause symptoms, most lymphangiomas are diagnosed at adulthood incidentally.
  • We experienced a case of a 60-year-old man diagnosed with a cystic lymphangioma of the gallbladder, which was successfully resected without any complication.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography were very helpful for the diagnosis of the cystic lesion around the gallbladder as were ultrasonography and computed tomography scan.
  • The patient underwent an open cholecystectomy and the histological findings were consistent with a cystic lymphangioma of the gallbladder.
  • We here report the case of cystic lymphangioma of the gallbladder with a review of the literature.

  • [Title] Giant mesenteric cystic lymphangioma presenting with abdominal pain and masquerading as a gynecologic malignancy.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dental care management of a young patient with extensive lymphangioma of the tongue: a case report.
  • Lymphangiomas are benign tumors resulting from a congenital malformation of the lymphatic system.
  • Relatively uncommon, lymphangiomas are usually diagnosed at birth and develop within the first years of life.
  • When these tumors occur in the oral cavity, the tongue is the most frequently affected site.
  • Lymphangioma of the tongue is a common cause of macroglossia in children, which may lead to a dry/cracked tongue with ulcerating secondary infections, difficulty in swallowing and mastication, speech disturbances, exclusive nasal breathing, airway obstruction, mandibular prognathism and other possible deformities of maxillofacial structures.
  • This paper discusses the most relevant features, clinical manifestations, disease-related impairments and treatment options for lymphangioma of the tongue.
  • It presents the case report of a five-year-old child diagnosed with this lesion, including a description of the patient's dental care management.

  • BACKGROUND: Lymphangiomas are rare benign lesions of the lymphatic system.
  • The authors report their experience with the lymphangioma laparoscopic approach.
  • METHODS: This retrospective study examined 15 consecutive operations for lymphangiomas in children, ages 5 months to 14 years, treated during the 5-year period from 1999 to 2004.
  • There was no recurrence of lymphangioma during a mean follow-up period of 35 months.
  • CONCLUSION: The laparoscopy procedure could be used successfully for abdominal lymphangioma, even in an emergency.

  • A case of orbital lymphangioma in a 9 year-old female, with proptosis (Hertel= 29 mm), ocular motility restriction, pain and visual loss due to compressive optic neuropathy is described.
  • A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam showed an expansive cystic lesion in the extraconal space of the right orbit, non-infiltrating with intralesional hemorrhage.
  • A transconjunctival puncture with 35 ml aspiration of a "chocolate color" fluid (which was confirmed by cytologic study as a hemorrhagic fluid) was performed.
  • CONCLUSION: Lynphangioma is a challenging disease and difficult to treat, with potential visual and cosmetic complications and the possibility of frequent recurrences.

  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We present two cases of cystic lymphangioma, their clinical, diagnosis, therapy and development, and we review the actual literature.
  • The first case is a young man with the diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma of the scrotum and pelvis.
  • The second case is one patient with a cystic lymphangioma of the retroperitoneum.
  • DISCUSSION: Cystic lymphangioma is a congenital lymphatic hamartoma of the lymphatic system that usually appears at childhood like a big mass at soft tissues that has a tendency to grow unless a completed excision is performed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are few cases of scrotal cystic lymphangioma in the literature; they are often misdiagnosed as other common cystic scrotal conditions leading to an improper surgical approach and an incomplete surgery that predisposes later recurrence.
  • Cystic lymphangioma of the retroperitoneum is a rare entity diagnosis in most cases as an incidentaloma.

  • [Title] Abdominal lymphangiomas in adults.
  • Abdominal lymphangiomas are rare benign cystic tumors that can become locally invasive and often require resection.
  • We performed a retrospective review of a single institution surgical experience with this lesion in adults.
  • The pathology prospective database was reviewed to identify patients with surgically resected abdominal lymphangiomas from January 1986 to May 2004.
  • The six patients with abdominal lymphangiomas ranged in age from 38 to 66 years.
  • All underwent CT scan that demonstrated a cystic lesion, but in only one third was the diagnosis made preoperatively.
  • Abdominal lymphangiomas are rare.
  • The correct diagnosis often remains elusive until tissue is obtained.
