Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present the case of an infant with a cystic hygroma investigated by lymphoscintigraphy. The source of lymph flowing into the hygroma was identified as were some ectatic lymphatics feeding it. Lymph flow was very rapid. The implications for therapy are discussed. Lymphoscintigraphy can assess many aspects of lymph flow not accessible by other means.
