cystic hygroma in utero, recurrence?
My daughter had a large, septated cystic hygroma in utero as diagnosed on my 12 week ultrasound. It was much smaller at an 18 week ultrasound and seemed to have resolved at 21 weeks. My daughter is 6 now and has what appears to be an enlarged cervical lymph node(about 4 cm in size). I am wondering if this could be related to the cystic hygroma and if further testing should be done. Do cystic hygromas recur? I would appreciate any help, I am having trouble finding answers.

Write to Dr Edmonds here:

He can probably answer your questions.

Has your daughter had any other issues in the last six years that might indicate a recurrence?

Thanks! I just heard back from him and he didn't think it was related. I am relieved. She has not had any other health issues that I think would be related or would make me worry about a recurrence.
