Lymphangiomas are fluid-filled thin-walled cysts formed due to malformations in the lymphatic system. It is usually seen in children and is rarely present in adults. Majority of the cases of lymphangiomas are seen in head and neck region with occasional extension in mediastinum. We present a case of an adult with macrocystic lymphangioma in the left posterior triangle of neck. FNAC and MRI are important modalities of investigation for diagnosis of lymphangioma. Surgical excision is the main modality of treatment in case of macrocystic lymphangioma. In case of a soft cystic swelling in head & neck region, a differential diagnosis of lymphangioma should be kept in mind.
