Hemolymphangiomas are benign hamartomatous hyperplasia of lymphatic vessels, which are filled with blood. Although they are benign, they can undergo progressive growth with compression and infiltration of adjacent structures. The management of lymphangiomas in the head and neck region is still challenging. Surgery has been the main form of treatment, but total removal is not possible in all cases because of the extent of the lesions, which sometimes involve vital structures. This was a case report of 7-year-old female patient presented with a nontender swelling in the submandibular region, which was clinically diagnosed as branchial cleft cyst, but the microscopic examination revealed the presence of hemolymphangioma.
