Abstract

Lymphangiomas are uncommon congenital lesions of the lymphatic system. Most of these lesions present in infancy or early childhood with a swelling in the head and neck region. We report a case of adult lymphangioma of the larynx. We also discuss the presentation, diagnosis and management of this tumour, and we present the current debate on sclerotherapy versus surgery for these tumours.


Key Words: Lymphangioma; Larynx.
