Özet

Lymphangioma is a congenital malformation of the lymphatic system, which is located mostly on the head and neck region. Most of the cases are seen at age younger 2 years. It is rare in adult population and when detected, it can be treated with surgical excision. We present a 50-year-old patient with giant lymphangioma on the posterior cervical region of the neck treated by surgical treatment successfully.
