Abstract

Lymphangiomas are rare benign congenital tumours, involving both the head and the neck and causing obstructing symptoms in the upper airways as well as aesthetic anomalies. In recent years, sclerosing therapy with OK-432 has become the treatment of choice in the management of these lymphatic malformations. Nonetheless, surgery still seems to be the therapy advocated for resolution of symptoms. Herein, three cases of lymphangiomas involving the head and the neck are described and a review of the English scientific literature is outlined.
