Lymangiomas are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. They can appear at any age and in any part of the body. In the head and neck area lymangiomas can give rise to functional as well as esthetic problems. Therapy consist of sclerosis, possibly followed by surgical excision. Stereophotogrammetry is a relatively new technique which, by means of superimposition of pre- and postoperative images, provides the possibility to quantify treatment results. In this paper 3 patients who underwent treatment of a lymphatic malformation and in whom treatment results were measured with stereophotogrammetry are discussed. The conclusion can be drawn that stereophotogrammetry is a promising technique for evaluation of treatment results of superficially localised lymphatic malformations that displace the skin in the head and neck area.
