Cystic hygroma (lymphangioma) is a relatively common finding in infants and children, accounting for about 5% of all benign tumors.1,2 Approximately 75% of cystic hygromas involve the neck and face, and most are diagnosed before the age of 2 years. Presentation in adults is quite rare, with approximately 100 cases reported in the literature.1 The average age at presentation in adults is 45 years, with one of the oldest cases being reported in an 86-year-old woman.3,4
