Mixed macrocystic and microcystic lymphatic malformation in the area of the parotid lobe on the right around the ear imaged in a T2-weighted, fat-saturated transverse MRI plane.
In selected cases, primary surgical resection of a lymphatic malformation (LM) of the face and neck is possible. In this case, only a few remnants of the lymphatic malformation remained, so further treatment is probably not necessary. Sclerotherapy would be required in the event of new swellings.
