Abstract: Cystic hygroma is a benign lymphatic malformation most commonly occurring in the cervico-facial region. It arises from sequestered lymphatic sacs that fail to communicate with the lymphatico-venous system. Although commonly presenting in paediatric age, cystic hygroma can occur at any age. Recurrent cystic hygroma is a known entity and can result from inadequate excision or specific tumour characteristics. We report such a case of giant recurrent cystic hygroma in the neck in a 14 years old female the surgical management of which was challenging due to the large size, previous adhesions and proximity to vital structures.
