Abstract: 

Lymphangiomas are rare congenital malformations, commonly seen in the head and neck region in 90% of cases They are uncommon, hamartomatous, congenital malformations of the lymphatic system that involve the skin and subcutaneous tissue and account for 4% of all vascular tumors and approximately 25% of all benign vascular tumors in children. The most common sites are the head and neck, followed by the proximal extremities, the buttocks, and the trunk. However, they sometimes can be found in the intestines, pancreas, and mesentery.
