Abstract

Cystic hygroma is a benign congenital malformation of the lymphatic system. Fetal cystic hygromas are usually associated with chromosomal anomalies and mostly have an adverse outcome. The mean size of cystic hygroma is 8 cm. We report a case of a giant cystic hygroma (17.1 ×11.3×8.1 cm) in a newborn which was diagnosed antenatally and had no syndromic association. It was successfully operated and baby remains free of any recurrence or complications at 2 months of age.
