Cystic hygromas are the cystic variety of lymphangioma, common locations being cervico-facial regions and axilla. Respiratory distress, recurrent infections or cosmetic reasons are the main indications of the treatment.

This article reviews the current literature and discusses the various problems encountered during the management of these lesions.
