Topic Area: Birthmarks
Forum: The Dermatology Forum
Question Posted By: Lee on Monday, April 24, 2000
I was born with a cyst on my left shoulder and was diagnosed as Cystic Hygroma. Are there any long term health concerns that I should be aware of? I am 27 years old now and have had no reoccurance nor do I have any health problems. I read that this condition is a lymphatic malformation-is there a risk of other organs being deformed as well?
Thank you! Answer Posted By: Derm M.D. ASR on Monday, April 24, 2000
Cystic hygroma is a benign congenital cyst which is not associated with anything internal. After so many years, I have to wonder why you would ask. . .
Good luck.

Forum: The Maternal and Child Health Forum
Question Posted By: Christine on Monday, December 28, 1998
I had an ultrasound at 11 weeks because of a cyst found on my right ovary.
I was told that they suspect a cystic hygroma because of the size of the
baby's neck. The doctor referred me to another doctor (for another
ultrasound), but unfortunately I have to wait a week before I can see that
doctor because of the holidays. Is it possible that this was a "bad" ultrasound and that there really isn't a cystic hygroma? Could the cystic hygroma be related to the fact that I had strep throat at the beg. of my pregnancy? Thank you. Dear Christine: Cystic hygroma can be misdiagnosed on ultrasound study and your physician has referred you to, I assume, a physician who is expert in interpreting ultrasound images for just this reason. Cystic hygroma is not related to a maternal infection in early pregnancy.

Letters to the Editors cystic hygroma OF CHEST WALL. Sir,. cystic hygroma OFTHE CHEST WALL is a rare occurrence, with only few case reports worldwide.
Letters to the Editors

A two and a half year old female child presented to the pediatric department with a lump in the right chest wall (the mammary region) since birth. The swelling was slow growing. There was no overlying skin discoloration, ulceration or discharge. Transillumination test was positive. The child was in good health and showed normal developmental milestones. There was no evidence of any other associated anomaly. Fig 1: USG - a large cystic mass with septations within the subcutaneous tissue of the right chest wall. Fig 2: CT scan - a well defined lobulated cystic mass lesion abutting the pectoralis major muscle. No enhancement was seen on contrast CT. Ultrasonographic examination revealed a well marginated, lobulated, predominantly cystic mass with multiple septations of varying thickness (fig 1). On colour flow imaging, no vascularity was noted. The extent of the lesion was better delineated on CT. It appeared as a lobulated cystic mass of fluid attenuation within the subcutaneous tissue of the right chest wall abutting the right pectoralis major muscle (fig 2). A diagnosis of a lymphangiomatous malformation was considerd. Aspiration revealed chylous fluid and showed few endothelial cells and stromal elements suggestive of lymphatic malformation (cystic hygroma). Post sclerosant Ultrasonography revealed marked reduction in the size of the cystic component and increased echogenicity of the solid components within the lesion.

Cystic hygroma in an adult : a case report
Departments of Surgery and Pathology, St John's Hospital at Howden, Livingstone, West Lothian Cystic hygromas are benign lesions arising due to an abnormality in lymphatic development and only rarely present in adults. Adequate radiological imaging prior to surgery is important as incomplete excision often leads to recurrence. Several adjunctive therapies have been shown to be beneficial in recurrent or inaccessible lesions but these are not in common use. We describe the case of a cystic lymphangioma appearing in adulthood that presented a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Keywords: cystic hygroma, pre-operative imaging J.R.Coll.Surg.Edinb., Feb 1999., 57-58 CASE REPORT A 62-year-old lady presented with a two week history of an asymptomatic swelling on the right side of her neck. On examination there was a discrete, fluctuant, mobile swelling, 3x4cm, in the right supraclavicular fossa above the middle third of the clavicle (see Figure 1). It was non-pulsatile and there was no regional lymphadenopathy. No other masses were felt in the neck. Ultrasonography of the lesion was reported as showing "An oval shaped cyst, 5x4x2.5 cm, with no inferior extension". The lesion was separate from adjacent vessels and did not involve the thyroid gland. Injecting dye into the lesion confirmed that it was confined to the supraclavicular fossa.

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed Clinical Presentation:
Fifty percent present in the first year and 90% present by two years of age. Usually the lesion is just cosmetically annoying but they can compress the airway and esophagus if they invade the mediastinum. The clinical course is characterized by intermittent or progressive growth, spontaneous regression, hemorrhage, and infection. Etiology/Pathophysiology:
The lesion spreads and engulfs adjacent tissues without invading them. Pathology:
Multilobular, multiloculated mass composed of cysts measuring 1 mm to 5 cm in diameter that contain serous fluid and are lined by lymphoendothelial tissue. Imaging Findings:
Seventy five percent are in the neck, 20% in the axilla, and 5% in the retroperitoneum. Two to three percent of the cervical and axillary masses extend into the mediastinum. DDX:
  • Hemangioma - often calcified, causes skeletal abnormalities, see cardiomegaly and increased pulmonary blood flow if there is AV shunting.
  • Thyroglossal duct cyst
  • Bronchial cleft cyst
  • Bronchogenic cyst

Lymphatic Malformation (cystic hygroma). Lymphatic malformations (cystichygroma or lymphangioma) are usually apparent in young children.
Lymphatic Malformation (Cystic Hygroma) Lymphatic malformations (cystic hygroma or lymphangioma) are usually apparent in young children. These lymphatic birthmarks appear in various forms, including as localized small lesions, or in the diffuse involvement of an extremity or particular body part or organ system. lymphatic malformations (cystic hygroma or lymphangioma) are usually classified as microcystic, macrocystic, or mixed. The medical term cystic hygroma, which was commonly used for macrocystic lymphatic malformatins located in the neck, is no longer used in modern medical terminology. Most lymphatic malformations (approximately 75%) occur in the cervicofacial region. The overlying skin can be healthy, or it may have tiny characteristic vesicles. Various lymphatic malformation lesions. 1st and 2nd lesions are commonly called "Cystic Hygroma" which is currently called macrocystic lymphatic malformation. Macrocystic lesions (cystic hygroma) typically easily compressible. 2nd lesion is a small lymphatic malformation (cystic hygroma) in the elbow. 3rd lesion involving the 2nd and 3rd toes. 2nd and 3rd lesions are not easily compressible due to microcystic component of the malformations (see the text).

General Discussion
Cystic hygromas are non-malignant malformations of the lymphatic system characterized by single or multiple fluid-filled lesions that occur at sites where the lymphatic system connects to the venous system, most commonly the back of the neck. Typically, this disorder becomes apparent in infancy or early childhood. Ninety percent of cases are symptomatic by the age of two years.

Cystic hygroma is an inborn tumor of the lymphatic system that, in some rare cases, may be inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. This progressive disorder is characterized by a large sac filled with lymph fluid protruding from the skull at the nape of the neck. The hygroma is thought to be caused by a failure of the lymph system to properly connect with the blood vessels in the neck and thus with the appropriate blood circulation system.
