    Microbubbles in macrocysts - Contrast-enhanced ultrasound assisted sclerosant therapy of a congenital macrocystic lymphangioma: a case report.
    BMC Med Imaging 2017 Jul 6;17(1):39. Epub 2017 Jul 6.
    Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, University Hospital of Erlangen, Loschgestrasse 15, D-91054, Erlangen, Germany.

Besides surgical excision, sclerosant therapy of these lesions by intracavitary injection of OK-432 (Picibanil®), a lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes, is a common therapeutical option. For an appropriate application of OK-432, a detailed knowledge about the structure and composition of the congenital cystic lymphangioma is essential. Read More

    An Uncommon Case of Cervical Thymopharyngeal Duct Cyst.

    Head, Department of Paediatric Surgery, Karamandaneion Children's Hospital, Patras, Achaia, Greece.
    Thymopharyngeal duct cyst is one of the most uncommon benign cervical lesions encountered in the paediatric population. Due to its rarity, it almost always escapes a correct preoperative diagnosis and is usually misdiagnosed as a branchial cyst or lymphangioma. Furthermore, although located at the neck it may present with retrosternal or mediastinal extension. Read More

    Endoscopic ultrasonography diagnosis of subepithelial lesions.
    Dig Endosc 2017 May 6;29(4):431-443. Epub 2017 Apr 6.
    Department of Gastroenterology, Kitasato University, Sagamihara, Japan.
    Using endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), it is practicable to diagnose subepithelial lesions (SEL) with originating layer, echo level, and internal echo pattern etc. Lipoma, lymphangioma, and cyst have characteristic features; therefore, there is no need for endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ectopic pancreas and glomus tumors, which originate from the third and fourth layers, are frequently seen in the antrum. Read More

    Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Emergency Hospital, Bucharest; Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Neonatology, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania;
    Cystic cervical hygroma or cervical cystic lymphangioma is a congenital benign disease of the lymphatic system that is characterized by the accumulation of lymph in the jugular lymphatic sacs of the nuchal region. The factor that causes this pathology is not clarified yet but the physiopathological mechanism seems to be multifactorial. The incidence and prevalence of cervical hygroma are increased in patients with Turner syndrome, Down syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Patau syndrome, Noonan syndrome, pterygium syndrome, Cantrell pentalogy, Fryns syndrome, Apert syndrome, Pena-Shokeir syndrome and achondroplasia.
