Lymphangiomas are rare benign malformations of the lymphatic system, commonly present in children, over the head and neck area. Occasionally, they can grow significantly in size and especially those located over the cervical region can cause airway obstruction and become life-threatening. Recurrent lymphangiomas usually occur during the early postsurgical period and 80% of them within the first 3 to 5 years. Read More

Superficial palpable masses of the head and neck are common in the pediatric population, with the vast majority of the lesions ultimately proven to be benign. Duplex ultrasonography (US) has emerged as the first-line imaging modality for the evaluation of superficial pediatric masses. Without utilizing radiation, iodinated contrast material, or sedation and/or anesthesia, US provides a means for quick and cost-effective acquisition of information, including the location, size, shape, internal content, and vascularity of the mass.
