Bottom Line: They have been known to grow to large size causing difficulties in mastication and speech.A variant of lymphangioma is cystic hygroma grows as lymphatic anomaly found in the neck commonly present with significant airway obstruction.We present a rare case of lymphangioma affecting the buccal mucosa of a 14-year-old male.

ABSTRACT
The lymphangioma are benign hamartomatous tumors of lymphatic vessels that arises from the sequestration of lymphatic that fails to communicate with the lymphatic system. Most common intra oral site being the anterior two-thirds of tongue, usually superficial in location and demonstrates a pebbly surface that resembles a cluster of translucent vesicles, they are typically soft and fluctuant masses. Secondary hemorrhage into the lymphatic spaces may cause some of these vesicles to become purple. They have been known to grow to large size causing difficulties in mastication and speech. A variant of lymphangioma is cystic hygroma grows as lymphatic anomaly found in the neck commonly present with significant airway obstruction. We present a rare case of lymphangioma affecting the buccal mucosa of a 14-year-old male.

Figure 3: Scar present measuring about 3 × 0.5 cm

Mentions: Intraoral examination showed a diffuse swelling measuring around 4 cm × 3 cm in size in relation to occlusal line of left buccal mucosa extending anteriorly from the corner of the lip to the retromolar region posteriorly, surface of the swelling had pebble like appearance. On palpation swelling was soft and nontender and nonpulsatile and had no dilated veins. Extraoral examination: A diffused extra oral swelling present in the left cheek region of about 5 × 6 cm in size; anteroposteriorly extending - from the left corner of the mouth to the anterior preauricular region, superoinferiorly-from the left ala of the nose to lower border of the body of mandible, no dilated veins over the swelling no pulsation felt [Figure 1] skin is pinchable with no sinus and fistula formation. There is scar over the swelling due to previous surgery and measuring about 3 × 0.5 cm [Figure 3].
