Post-traumatic lymphangioma of the forearm in a young adult male

Lymphangioma resulting from trauma has rarely been described in the upper limb. Following direct blunt trauma it has previously been reported in the head and neck region as well as the abdomen. We report a rare case of post-traumatic soft tissue cystic swelling within the flexor aspect of the forearm, which was shown to be a lymphangioma. We describe the clinical features, MRI findings, and surgical treatment of this lesion.
