Abstract

Summary One hundred twenty-six cases of cystic hygromas were seen in 10 yr. More than two thirds of the cases were seen at birth or shortly thereafter. Inflammation occurred in 15.8%; hemorrhage into the hygroma in 12.6%. Radiotherapy has no place in management. Total excision is the only effective treatment.
