Ultrasound images of Lymphangioma

These are benign tumours of the lymphatic vessels, usually diagnosed in the neonatal period or on prenatal sonography. They are predominantly cystic, frequently septated, and may be large (Fig.below). They can compress adjacent organs and vessels and their severity depends to a large extent upon their location. They are most common in the neck (cystic hygroma) but can be found in various locations, including the abdomen, and are occasionally found in adults after a long asymptomatic period.
