    Functionally feeding and swallowing are complex processes divided into 4 phases, as shown in Figures and The first phase is the preoral phase, which is dependent upon the infant/child’s sensation and communication of second phase, the oral phase, is the oral cavity–food processing phase where food or liquid is formed into a bolus, enabling safe passage through the pharynx.   INTRODUCTION: Lymphangiomas are hamartomatous, congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. The incidence of lymphangiomas has been reported to range from to per newborns.[1] 50% of the lymphangiomas will be diagnosed at birth and 90% of them are diagnosed by 2yrs of age. 75% of the cases were found in the head and neck, 15% are in axillary region.[2].

    The larynx or organ of voice is placed at the upper part of the air passage. It is situated between the trachea and the root of the tongue, at the upper and: forepart of the neck, where it presents a considerable projection in the middle line.: It forms the lower part of the anterior wall of the pharynx, and is covered behind by the mucous lining of that cavity; on either side of it lie the.   The cough is worse in hot, humid weather or in changing weather.

Approximately 75% of lymphangiomas occur in the neck, generally in the posterior triangle, and 3%–10% extend into the mediastinum. Less than 1% of all lymphangiomas are purely mediastinal (, 8). Spontaneous regression occurs in 6% of cases. Most often, lymphangiomas are asymptomatic and manifest as painless masses.

Most of these lesions manifest in children Involvement of the larynx in isolation is rare and only a few cases have been reported so far.

DISCUSSION The true incidence of lymphangiomas is not known, but they are considered to be relatively rare lesions. 1,2 Although it is generally accepted that the peripheral lymphatic system develops from five primitive sacs originating from the venous system, the embryologic events leading to the development of lymphangiomas remain unclear.' Lymphangiomas have been.

While usually singular lesions, there are reports of patients with lymphangiomas at multiple sites [3,9]. There have been few reports in the literature of lymphangiomas of the larynx, and none of the previously reported cases described laryngeal involvement of a newborn without an obvious neck mass or dysphagia [7,8,25,27].

Lymphangiomas account for about 5%–6% of all benign tumours in infants and children.1,3Fifty percent of cases involve the head and neck, with only 10% occurring in internal organs.2Sixty percent of these masses are present at birth.

Abdominal cystic lymphangiomas are very uncommon. Almost 90% are detected by the mean age of 2 years, and most occur in the mesentery of the small bowel.4They.

Children may receive a higher radiation dose than necessary if CT settings are not adjusted for their smaller body size. As a result, the risk for developing a radiation-related cancer can be several times higher for a young child compared with an adult exposed to an identical CT scan.

It cannot visualize the larynx in physiological conditions. The ribs in infants and young children are oriented more horizontally than in adults and older children lessening the movement of the chest.

Rib cartilage is more springy in children making the chest wall less rigid. This can allow the chest wall to retract during episodes of. 13 year old girl with isolated laryngeal lymphangioma (Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg ;) 35 year old pregnant woman with large cystic tumor in fetal chest (Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol ;) 58 year old man with conjunctival lymphangioma (Case Rep Ophthalmol Med ;) Secondary lymphangiomas of vulva (Indian J Dermatol ;).

Larynx (anterior view) The larynx is a complex hollow structure located in the anterior midline region of the is anterior to the esophagus and at the level of the third to the sixth cervical vertebrae in its normal position.

It consists of a cartilaginous skeleton connected by membranes, ligaments and associated muscles that suspend it from surrounding structures.

Few adult haemangiomas of larynx have been reported. Most common presentations are in infants where the incidence is about 4% - 5% [1]. In children they resolve by age of five whereas in adults they do not regress. In children the most common modality of treatment is by propranolol.

In adults, there are various modalities of surgical excision by laser excision with Co2 or KTP and. Welcome to the 21st Edition of Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics – the reference of choice among pediatricians, pediatric residents, and others involved in the care of young patients.

For many years, it had been commonly accepted knowledge that the larynx in infants and children is “funnel shaped with the narrowest point of the funnel at the laryngeal exit.” As a child matures, the transverse dimension of the larynx assumes the more cylindrical shape of the adult larynx.

Infants with peri-orbital or orbital hemangiomas who had not received either local or systemic corticosteroids were recruited.

The changes in tumor size, color, and texture, and any side effects of the drug were recorded. A total of 15 infants with a mean age of +/- months were treated according to the set protocol. Laryngeal Lymphangioma Epidemiology Laryngeal lymphangiomas are rare congenital anomalies of the larynx.

Half the cases are diagnosed in the neonatal period, and 75% are diagnosed by age 1 year. Etiology and pathogenesis Lymphangiomas originate from lymphatic vessel malformations.This book consists of 14 parts, each containing several papers. The parts are: General Considerations in the Management of Patients with Head and Neck Tumors, Tumors of the Ear, Tumors of the Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinuses, Tumors of the Oral Cavity, Tumors of the Pharynx, Tumors of the Larynx, Tumors of the Skin, Dental and Jaw Tumors, Tumors of the Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands, Tumors.Travels down the throat through the larynx (voice box) and trachea (windpipe).

Then into even smaller tubes called bronchioles.
