Results: Ultrasound of the neck showed a cystic lesion seen in the left supraclavicular/ lower neck region. It was well defined and appeared to lie superficial to the neck muscles. There was movement of fluid on compression. It measured at least 13.6 x 53.2 mm in diameters. It was lied close to but separated from the vessels. Computed tomography of the neck showed a well-defined hypodense lesion seen in the left supraclavicular region. It measured 4.3 x 2 cm in diameter, was of fluid density and superficial to the left sternocleidomastoid muscle. The thyroid gland was normal. He underwent an excision under general anaesthesia on 19/1/2012. Intraoperatively, the cystic swelling appeared bluish and separated from the vessels. Post-operative recovery was uneventful. Histopathological examination reported as inflamed cystic hygroma . Specimen of cystic mass measured about 6.0 cm x 5.0 cm x 3.0 cm. Histologically, sections of the fibrocollagenous cyst wall had diffuse lymphocytic infiltration. The lining was formed by flattened endothelial cells.

Conclusion: Cystic hygromas are a rare differential diagnosis in adult neck masses and should be considered for the adult patients who have neck masses. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
