Cystic lymphangioma (CL) or cystic hygroma is a non-congenital benign tumour, whose origin has been suspected to be found in disorders of the lymphatic embryogenesis: this is the reason why it appears during the first years of life, while it is rarely observed in adults. Most of these tumour occur in the following sites: neck, axillary fossa, abdomen; both sexes are affected by them at the same extent. The object of the present work is a case of CL observed on an adult patient; it is situated in the left lateral cervical portion, surgically treated by selective dissection with preservation of the neck vascular nervous structures.
