Abstract:

The lymphatic malformations of the neck (LMN) are rare diseases, which increase progressively until very large size. The clinical symptoms are pressure signs, due to the compression to the respiratory, digestive and vascular structures of the neck.

The authors are presenting the clinical case of a 77 yo male patient with history of simple diffuse goiter. During the evolution, the cervical mass increases progressively its sizes, but in the last 2-3 months before the admission in our clinic the patient describes a rapid and marked growth, with the settle down of the cervical pressure signs.

The imagistic evaluation of the cervical mass establishes the diagnosis of cystic cervical tumour that belongs probably to the thyroid gland. The surgical approach succeeds to remove a cystic tumor of 20x15 cm with an irregular round shape.

The pathologic histological examination establishes the diagnosis of distended lymphatic channel corresponding to a cystic cervical lymphatic malformation. Postoperative course was uneventful.

Conclusions: LMN is a rare disease which can be confound with a goiter. Surgery remains the single effective therapeutic approach.
