Introduction: Hemolymphangioma is a particularly uncommon malformation of the lymphatic and blood vessels. A restricted variety of hemolymphangioma instances occurring within the pancreas, extremities, spleen, and different organs have been reported till September 2017. To the very best of our information, no instances of hemolymphangioma within the occipitocervical area have been reported within the literature.
Case Presentation: We reported the case of a 23-year-old male affected person with an occipitocervical lesion presenting atypically as neck ache and stiffness over a interval of 5 months. Though hemolymphangioma has traditionally demonstrated a feminine predilection (2.25 : 1 feminine to male) and presentation within the third to fourth a long time of life, this case is an atypical manifestation occurring in a younger male affected person. The medical traits and administration decisions of this unusual case of hemolymphangioma within the occipitocervical area are mentioned, and a assessment based mostly on the accessible literature can be introduced.
Conclusion: Hemolymphangioma of the occipitocervical area is an unusual presentation of a uncommon lesion. Though uncommon, hemolymphangioma needs to be thought-about a differential prognosis for lots occurring within the occipitocervical area. Full surgical resection is the therapy of selection and affords a very good prognosis.
