In many cases,a detailed history and physical examination are sufficient to make a diagnosis, but in circumstances when the diagnosisis uncerta[...]

Background: Neck and head masses occurring in the neonatal period and early infancy consist of vascular tumors, vascular malformations, benign and malignant soft tissue tumors, and other develop mental lesions. Although some lesions can be diagnosed on clinical grounds, others can only be diagnosed by imaging. [...]

Findings and procedure details: Retrospective study and examination of neonates with masses of the neck. US wereperformed in all patients, CT in 6 cases and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 10 cases.   Cervical teratoma was foundin 04 cases, neuroblastoma in 02 cases, ,cysticlymphangioma in 3 cases, occipital enc[...]

Conclusion: Imaging is essential for accurate diagnosis and pretreatment planning of neck masses. Ultrasound is often used for initial evaluation. Computed tomography (CT) provides additional information with regard to the extent and internal composition of the mass. MR imaging is advantageous because it impart[...]
