A case of Cystic Hygroma cured with Homoeopathy :Dr. Vivek Gopalakrishnan BHMS, NDH (NZ) Cystic hygromas are abnormal growths that usually appear on a baby’s neck or head. They consist of one or more cysts and tend to grow larger over time. This disorder most often develops while the baby is still in the womb. However, a cystic hygroma can also appear after birth.
Cystic hygromas are fluid-filled sacs caused by blockages in the lymphatic system (a network of organs and tissues that help remove toxins and waste from your body). They usually form between the ninth and 16th week of pregnancy. Approximately half of all fetuses with a cystic hygroma have chromosomal abnormalities. However, a baby is unlikely to have a chromosomal abnormality if the cystic hygroma goes away by week 20.Cystic hygromas can also increase the risk of miscarriage and may even be life-threatening.. What Causes Cystic Hygromas to Form? Cystic hygromas can develop due to genetic disorders or environmental factors. One or more growths may be present at the time of diagnosis. Common environmental causes of cystic hygromas are: viral infections passed from the mother to the baby during pregnancy ,exposure to drugs or alcohol during pregnancy Cystic hygromas are seen more often in infants with genetic diseases. They are particularly common in infants with chromosomal abnormalities. Some genetic conditions associated with hygromas include: ,Turner’s syndrome — where female children have one X chromosome instead of two ,Trisomy 13, 18, or 21 — conditions where children have an extra copy of a chromosome ,Noonan syndrome — a disorder caused by a mutation (change) in one of seven particular genes
Cystic hygromas may not be noticeable when the baby is born. They can become visible as they grow larger and the child gets older. Cystic hygromas will usually appear by the time the child is 2 years old.
