Infections of congenital cervical neck masses associated with bacteremia

, : Infections of congenital cervical neck masses associated with bacteremia. Journal of Pediatric Surgery 21(2): 173-174

Congenital cervical neck masses are usually benign lesions. However, cystic hygromas and cervical teratomas are associated with a high risk for potentially life-threatening complications, primarily that of respiratory distress secondary to tracheal compression. Children with unoperated teratomas are also at high risk for malignant changes. A third potential complication is that of infection of the lesion. We present two newborns with infections of cervical neck masses associated with bacteremia. One lesion was a teratoma, the other a cystic hygroma. In both infants, surgical excision had been delayed. These cases illustrate the need for prompt, accurate diagnosis and treatment of congenital cervical neck masses.

Regulation of NO production is crucial for improving the hepatic dysfunction. We have previously r...
