Abstract

Although surgical operation is a commonly preferred method in lymphangiomas (LAs), there is a risk of vascular or nerve injury especially in macrocystic LA. Therefore, sclerotherapy would be more appropriate as the first treatment. The authors wanted to share the excellent results of intralesional bleomycin treatment in 3 patients with cervical macrocystic LA.
