Si distinguono del linfangioma a sede mediastinica due varietà clinicopatologiche: la prima, igroma cistico, nel mediastino alto, a prevalente presentazione nell'infanzia (la diagnosi occorre in genere entro i 2 anni di età); l'altra forma, meno frequente, è di riscontro in età adulta, per lo più nel mediastino anteriore basso a distanza dal collo [73]. Il linfangioma cistico mediastinico o igroma cistico è una proliferazione istologicamente benigna di vasi linfatici che può assumere una crescita infiltrativa.…”

Malignant transformation has not been described [7]. Nevertheless, these lesions tend to infiltrate surrounding tissues and symptoms are due to the compression of near structures or infection, rupture, torsion and hemorrhage of the mass [8].…”
