  • 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.

  • 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.

  • BACKGROUND: Cystic lymphangioma is a rare malformative benign tumor of the lymphatic vessels.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • He is well and free of disease one year after the intervention.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • Lymphangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that may involve the skin, subcutaneous tissues, and intestines.
  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical, imaging and pathological findings of congenital intrapulmonary lymphangioma and hemangioma in 5 infants and young children.
  • METHOD: Data of 3 cases with congenital intrapulmonary lymphangioma and 2 cases with haemangioma were analyzed.
  • Immunochemical studies indicated D2-40 positive, factor VIII weak positive for lymphangioma cases; while in hemangioma cases, factor VIII was positive, D2-40 was negative or weakly positive, and both of cytokeratin was negative.
  • CONCLUSION: It is very important to consider and identify congenital intrapulmonary lymphangioma or hemangioma when a patient has cystic pockets and space occupying change in their lung by imaging and pathological studies.

  • [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.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and describe CT and endoscopic imaging findings in patients with pathologically confirmed gastrointestinal tract lymphangiomas.
  • METHODS: Findings from imaging examinations in 6 patients with pathologically confirmed lymphangioma were retrospectively reviewed (computed tomographic images obtained in 6 patients and endoscopic images obtained in 4 patients were available for review).
  • RESULTS: Lymphangiomas in gastrointestinal tract showed similar features in CT imaging: Contrast-enhanced CT scan showed the oval submucosal masses with homogeneous low attenuation.
  • The lymphangioma appeared as a well-defined, smoothly marginated and non-enhancing cystic mass with intact overlying intestinal mucosa.
  • In one case, the lymphangiomas were multiple with volvulus.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lymphangiomas exhibited typical appearances that reflected their cystic pathologic features.
  • They showed similar features in CT imaging: well-demarcated, non-enhancing, homogeneous low attenuation cystic masses with intact overlying mucosa.

  • Radiologically, we diagnosed this lesion as a benign cystic tumor in the lung.
  • As this suggested a benign bronchogenic cyst, we performed extirpation of the cyst under thoracoscopy.
  • After this operation, the cyst was diagnosed as an intrapulmonary cystic lymphangioma pathologically.

  • OBJECTIVE: Our aim is to present the imaging features of cervical lymphangiomas, which may be related with respiratory and vascular disturbances.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nine patients with cervical lymphangioma were evaluated with ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • All lymphangiomas were hypoechoic on the US and were of low-density (20-25 HU) on the CT.
  • CONSLUSION: Cervical lymphangiomas present as cystic lesions with septations, and they may cause respiratory distress or vascular-lymphatic disturbance.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Retroperitoneal and genital lymphangioma therapeutic challenges in a developing country.
  • BACKGROUND: Lymphangiomas occur most commonly in the head and neck region, while other sites are rarely affected.
  • A combination of retroperitoneal and genital lymphangioma is very rare indeed.
  • Though congenital, it may persist into adulthood due to missed diagnosis and inadequate or total lack of treatment.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A report of a 22-year-old male student who presented with recurrent multiloculated genital, thigh, groin and retroperitneal lymphangioma.
  • Complete surgical excision of lymphangioma may be precluded by vital structures but sclerotherapy produces satisfactory resolution.
  • The difficulties in management with limited facilities for diagnosis and treatment are highlighted.

  • [Title] [Clinical aspects of intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma in Korea].
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: cystic lymphangioma is an uncommon disease, and rarely develops in the intraabdomen.
  • The aim of this article was to discuss about clinical characteristics of intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma developed in Korea.
  • METHODS: age, sex, symptoms, locations and size of the lesions, diagnostic methods, treatments, complications and recurrence were analyzed in 13 pathologically confirmed cases of intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma and 18 cases of literature consideration reported in Korea.
  • RESULTS: intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma commonly developed in adults compared to the other lymphangioma, and frequently located in the mesentery.
  • Abdominal pain was the most common symptom, but it was a non-specific finding.
  • Abdominal ultrasonography and abdominal CT were diagnostic tools most commonly used, but preoperative diagnosis was possible only in 22.6%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: preoperative diagnosis of intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma is difficult and symptoms and signs are not specific.
  • Intraabdominal cystic lymphangioma should be suspected in patients with non specific abdominal pain and intraabdominal mass and active diagnostic evaluation is mandatory.
