Pediatric Lymphatic Malformations

Key Points About Lymphatic Malformation in Children

  • A lymphatic malformation  is a lymphatic vessel that isn't formed correctly. The vessel traps the lymph fluid and causes cysts to form. Your child may have one or more of these cysts.
  • This is a condition your child is born with.
  • They are most common in the neck.
  • Most lymphatic malformations are diagnosed at birth. The rest are often found by 2 years old.
  • Treatment may include surgery to remove the lymphatic malformation or other methods to destroy it.
