    [Current therapeutic approach to cervicofacial lymphangiomas in children].
    Ann Pediatr (Paris) 1992 Oct;39(8):491-4
    Service d'Otorhinolaryngologie, Hôpital d'Enfants Armand Trousseau, Paris.
    Twenty-four cases of cervicofacial lymphangioma treated between 1984 and 1991 are reported. The therapeutic approach is discussed. Because the therapeutic problem depends on whether or not the airways are involved, an endoscopic evaluation and a CT scan study should be included in the workup. In the five patients with limited lymphangiomas, complete surgical exeresis was feasible and yielded good results. Sclerosing injections are an alternative to surgery in this situation. In patients with pharyngeal or laryngeal infiltration or involvement of the mediastinum, the prognosis is extremely grim and surgery is still the mainstay of therapy despite the potential for recurrence due to the fact that only incomplete exeresis can be performed. Tracheostomy was required in two patients.

    [Therapeutic strategy for cervicofacial lymphangioma in children].
    Ann Otolaryngol Chir Cervicofac 1991 ;108(4):227-30
    Service ORL et de Chirurgie Cervico-Faciale, Hôpital Trousseau, Paris.
    The authors report a series of 22 cervicofacial lymphagiomas treated from 1984 to 1990, and try to define a therapeutic strategy. In 11 cases, facial, laryngeal or pharyngeal extension was observed, and 1 cas showed mediastinal extension. These cases are not easily treated, and it is impossible to perform complete surgery, thus leading to recurrence. Read More
