    Abstract

    Cystic hygroma (lymphangioma) is often a benign congenital malformation of the lymphatic system that occurs as a result of sequestration or obstruction of lymphatic vessels. These lesions are usually discovered in infant or children younger than two years of age. Occurrence in adults is uncommon, and fewer than 100 cases of adult lymphangioma have been reported in the literature (1,2) . The objectives of this case report are to present the clinical history and surgical findings, review of literature and the unique problems encountered in the surgical management of this particular patient
