Abstract

Cervical lymphangioma usually occurs in infants and children as a soft tumor, but it is rarely found in adults. We report a rare case of lymphangioma arising in the right lateral neck of a 44-year-old female. The patient presented with a soft and painless swelling in the right lateral neck. Ultrasound and MRI findings suggested a cystic mass inside the right sternocleidomastoid muscle and the tumor was completely resected under general anesthesia despite some adhesion with the internal jugular vein. Histopathological examination revealed lymphangioma. No recurrence has been noted to date.
