  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Asymptomatic lymphangioma involving the spleen and retroperitoneum in adults.
  • Lymphangioma, a benign neoplasm of the lymphatic system, is common in children but rare in adults.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Differential diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma of the pancreas based on imaging features.
  • Lymphangioma is a benign tumor, which is a consequence of lymphatic malformation with blockage of lymphatic flow.
  • Most lymphangiomas occur in the neck and axillary region, and < 1% occur in the mesentery or retroperitoneum.
  • Lymphangiomas arising from the pancreas are extremely rare.
  • We report the case of a 34-year-old woman with cystic lymphangioma of the pancreas without major symptoms or signs.
  • Differential diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma from other cystic-like tumors of the pancreas can be performed based on their imaging characteristics, including presence of septa, cystic or wall calcification, soft tissue, wall thickness, single or multiple loculation, and dilatation of the pancreatic duct.

  • Lymphangioma is a rare benign lesion of the gastrointestinal tract, in which the large intestine is the least commonly involved site.
  • To the authors' knowledge a lymphangioma of the anal canal has not been reported.
  • Described herein is a case of pedunculated polypoid lymphangioma of the right lateral wall on the transitional zone of the anal canal measuring 1.7 x 1.3 x 1 cm in a 40-year-old woman.
  • A pedicle does not exclude the endoscopic diagnosis of lymphangioma.
  • Lymphangioma must be included in the differential diagnosis of polypoid lesions of the anal canal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Axillary cavernous lymphangioma in pregnancy and puerperium.
  • 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.

  • They account for 4% of all vascular tumors, but comprise 25% of benign vascular growths in children.
  • They are hamartomatous in nature and may be grouped into cutaneous lymphangioma circumscriptum (CLC), cavernous lymphangiomas, and cystic hygromas.
  • It is important to distinguish CLC, a potentially recurrent disease, from an unusual type of metastatic carcinoma of the skin called carcinoma telangiectoides.

  • 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.
  • Cystic lymphangiomas should be included in the differential diagnosis of an ovarian cystic mass, and laparoscopic excision may be the method of treatment.

  • Lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor characterized by proliferating lymph vessels and composed of large cyst spaces with endothelium-lined channels of varying dimensions.
  • The incidence of lymphangioma is approximately one in 6000 pregnancies.
  • Less than 1% of lymphangiomas are purely mediastinal.
  • The great majority of cases are of cystic lymphangioma, but very rarely there is a mixed lesion consisting of multiple cysts of dilated capillary and lymph vessels.
  • We report a case of posterior mediastinal lymphangioma diagnosed at 28 weeks' gestation, in which three-dimensional ultrasonography was helpful in determining the precise location of the tumor.
  • A Cesarean section was performed at 39 weeks and the tumor was resected on the 5(th) day postdelivery; histological examination revealed a mixed cystic lymphangioma.

  • Three months earlier he had undergone an extensive evaluation for a single episode of melaena, including upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, colonoscopy to the caecum, enteroscopy and an abdominal ultrasound scan, that were negative.
  • 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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • [Title] Mesenteric lymphangioma in adult: a case series with a review of the literature.
  • Mesenteric lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor with nonspecific clinical features.
  • A case series of three adult patients who had mesenteric lymphangioma is reported along with a review of literature.
  • In our cases, preoperative diagnosis of mesenteric lymphangioma was not suspected and all the patients had laparotomy.
  • It is stressed that mimicking of mesenteric lymphangioma with a cavitatory form of tuberculosis of mesenteric nodes in areas of high prevalence may lead to its misdiagnosis.
  • Histopathology confirmed diagnosis of mesenteric lymphangioma in each case.
  • Although rare and difficult to diagnose preoperatively, surgical resection is to be considered gold standard treatment for mesenteric lymphangioma.

  • CONTEXT: Cystic lymphangiomas originate as benign masses which occur mostly in children especially in the head and neck region and/or the groin.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • For diagnosis of these lesions, the principal studies used are ultrasonography, computed axial tomography (CAT) and occasionally the use of magnetic resonance imaging, a study not always possible to accomplish in all hospitals.
  • We present the case of a patient with a giant retroperitoneal cyst whose diagnosis was missed by means of conventional ultrasound and CAT.
  • By means of this technique, we were able to make the diagnosis that the tumor did not depend on any organ, but rather was an independent retroperitoneal tumor.
  • Final surgical and histopathological diagnosis was a retroperitoneal multilocular lymphangioma.

  • INTRODUCTION: Cervical lymphangiomas can not only cause severe sequelae (aesthetic, phonatory or deglutory) but can also be life thereatening due to airway compresion or massive bleeding.
  • This paper analyzes our surgical results, the value of prenatal diagnosis and the use of new techniques such as the EXIT procedure for airway control in sereve cases.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical record of patients with cervical lymphangiomas treated in our center between 1986 and 2009, according to our Clinical Documentation Database.
  • Data referred to prenatal diagnosis, intrapartum airway management, surgical procedures and morbidity, sclerosing substance infiltration and long term sequelae was analyzed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cervical lymphangiomas are a very sereve condition, not only due to possible airway compresion or massive bleeding but also becose of the severe secualaes they may cause.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Pathogenesis of lymphangiomas.
  • Based on various hypotheses concerning lymphangiogenesis published in the literature, different putative mechanisms of lymphangioma development are discussed including failure of the lymphatic system to connect with or separate from the venous system, abnormal budding of the lymphatic system from the cardinal vein, or acquired processes such as traumata, infections, chronic inflammations, and obstructions.
  • Increasingly, the possible influence of lymphangiogenic growth factors on the development of lymphangiomas is discussed.
  • The proved expression of different growth factors in the endothelium of lymphangiomas leads to new hypotheses regarding the pathogenesis of lymphangiomas.
  • Thus, further studies on the lymphangiogenesis and the development of lymphangiomas will have to clarify as to whether lymphangiomas are true malformations or neoplastic in nature.

  • 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.

  • We report a case of clinically regressed microcystic lymphangioma by sclerotherapy with OK-432 after intralesional excision.
  • This is an alternative effective method in the treatment of microcystic lymphangioma.
  • However, because histological examination revealed remaining lymphangioma, the possibility of recurrence remains.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Late-onset presentation of orbital lymphangioma.
  • PURPOSE: To report a group of patients with biopsy-proven orbital lymphangioma diagnosed late in life.
  • METHODS: The clinical records and histopathologic findings of 3 patients with biopsy-proven orbital lymphangioma were reviewed.
  • RESULTS: Three patients were identified who were diagnosed with orbital lymphangioma at the ages of 70, 80, and 82 years old.
  • Each patient presented with different symptoms and signs including presence of a superficial mass, periorbital pain, and gradual painless proptosis, respectively.
  • In one case, imaging revealed an isolated superficial mass, and in the other 2 cases it demonstrated the presence of a heterogeneous, cystic, retrobulbar mass.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lymphangioma, one of the most common vascular lesions in childhood, should also be included in the differential diagnosis of orbital masses in adults, including elderly adults.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: We review the clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic features of cystic lymphangioma of the middle ear, and discuss the developmental etiology and management of such a lesion.
  • METHODS: We present an unusual location for the development of a cystic lymphangioma with emphasis on etiology, clinical implications, and current treatment.
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the only report of lymphangioma involving the middle ear represented in the English-language literature.
  • The treatment of choice for lymphangiomas located in the middle ear is surgical excision.
  • Definitive diagnosis of the lesion is then made by identifying specific histopathologic characteristics.
  • Although rare and histologically benign, middle ear lymphangiomas may produce significant patient discomfort and ultimately a conductive hearing loss.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Mesenterial lymphangiolipoma - a rare finding in an asymptomatic patient].
  • BACKGROUND: Lymphangioma is an uncommon tumor, an intraperitoneal lymphangiolipoma is exceedingly rare.
  • These tumors are principally benign, but lead to complications due to their size and localization.
  • CASE REPORT: A 46 year old male patient presented for a regular medical check up.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dabska tumor arising in lymphangioma circumscriptum.
  • We describe a case of Dabska tumor (DT) occurring within a large congenital lymphangioma circumscriptum on the thigh of a 14-year-old female.
  • Diagnostic biopsy showed numerous intravascular papillary projections lined by atypical endothelial cells within the anastomosing vascular channels of a lymphangioma circumscriptum.
  • Although it has been described in pre-existing lymphangiomas, to the best of our knowledge this is the first case to be described in a pre-existing lymphangioma circumscriptum.
  • During a follow-up of 9 years, the lymphangioma circumscriptum has recurred, but there has been no evidence of DT recurrence or metastasis.
