Lymphatic Malformation Cysts

Lymphatic malformation cysts have different signal characteristics as some have little blood or little protein. A doctor can easily access the lesion with ultrasound and to see it we inject contrast into the lesion. Ultrasound can limit any kind of radiation which is pretty common topic nowadays. Draining the lymphatic malformation cyst will cause it to recur so you have do something with the cyst to stop the reoccurrence. This is where sclerotherpy or scarring therapy comes in; the doctor injects something in like doxycycline, which makes it smaller and that allows us to treat it in the short run and engage in discussion with the child and parents what is going to happen in the future.
