Abstract

Complete excision of giant cystic hygroma requires meticulous dissection of the multilocular lymphatic cysts from the adjacent vascular and neural structures. The association of venous aneurysms with cystic hygroma is extremely rare. We report two infants with cystic hygroma in whom preoperative diagnosis of venous aneurysm was helpful in planning complete excision of the lymphatic lesions.
