Athens, Greece & Nashville, TN

A fetus with a large facial mass. The fetus was diagnosed with severe lymphangioma and hemangioma. Surgery was completed initially to take out a portion in the chin, with hopes that the swelling would go down. A week later a tracheostomy was performed in due to the weight of the mass. The third week another surgery was done to stop some of the bleeding in the left cheek. MRI confirmed a massive lymphomatous malformation consistent with cystic hygroma within the neck with airway compromise. No focal parenchymal lesions are seen within the brain.


Cystic hygroma, anterior
