안면골 변형을 동반한 림프관종의 치험례
Lymphangioma is a benign, growth of lymphatic tissue that is present at birth or develops in early childhood, which may cause serious alterations in growth and developmemt. The problems with facial lymphangioma is usually releated directly to their size and to the area of the face which is involved. The lesions themselves may range from small, localized blemishes to huge facial masses involving both soft tissue and underlying bone and causing great distortion and asymmetry. The facial bones are seldom involved, but the natutal evolution of an individual lesion often cannot be accurately predicted when the child is first seen. Any changes in the underlying facial bone could be due either to a direct growth of the lesion into the bone, or secondary to pressure of the lesion growing outside the bone itself. A case of cystic lymphangioma extending from the neck to the tongue is reported. A six-year-old female was admitted because of swelling of the tongue. At that time, the tongue reportedly reached the extraoral size of 7x5x2.5cm and a soft, diffuse swelling of left anterior neck was revealed. The removal of cystic mass including left neck dissection and partial glossectomy were undertaken. The another case of lymphangioma is located on mandibular cheek. A twenty nine-year-old male was admitted because of palpable mass of the left mandibular area and fissure of palate. The radical excision of mass with mandibulectomy of body were undertuken. Thus we reported such a rare case and reviewed the lymphangioma.
