A 21-month-old healthy boy presented for evaluation of an asymptomatic, right-sided neck mass. The lesion had grown in proportion to his body since it was noticed at age 4 months. Prior workup had included a fine-needle aspiration biopsy, findings from which were nondiagnostic. He also underwent 2 ultrasonographic evaluations of the lesion, one showing a 3 × 3.2 × 1.9-cm solid nodule in the subcutaneous tissue and the other showing multiple hypoechoic small nodules in the subcutaneous fat. His medical history was unremarkable, and findings from systems review were negative.
