Lymphangiomas, or lymphatic malformations, are congenital tumors that grow on the head and neck. They are benign. Microcystic lymphangiomas may be congenital or develop in infancy or childhood. They do not disappear on their own. Sometimes these lesions are association with capillary venous lymphatic (CVL) malformation. Bacterial infections may occur. Sclerotherapy and surgical excision are potential treatments for this condition.
