Abstract

Two cases of cystic lymphangioma which developed in the neck region of adults are reported. The first case was a 46 year old housewife who noticed a swelling on her right neck region. The tumor was a unilocular cystic benign tumor covered with thin capsule and removed from the surrounding tissue. The second case was a 19-year old male who noticed sudden swelling on his left side of the neck following a traffic accident. The swelling was a multilocular benign cyst which contained yellowish serous liquid, as in case 1. The cyst was removed successfully. The two cases had a favourable post-operative course and there have been no signs of recurrence. Histologically the cysts contained one layer of endothelial cells and an accumulation of lymphocytes.
