Imaging Neck Masses in the Neonate and Young Infant
SEMINARS IN ULTRASOUND CT AND MRI
2015; 36 (2): 120-137
Head and neck masses occurring in the neonatal period and early infancy consist of vascular tumors, vascular malformations, benign and malignant soft tissue tumors, and other developmental lesions. Although some lesions can be diagnosed on clinical grounds, others can only be diagnosed by imaging. Beyond diagnosis, imaging plays a significant role in evaluating the location and extent of a lesion for possible intervention. In this article, we review the clinical presentation and imaging appearance of common and rare masses that may be encountered in this age group. We also highlight current treatment strategies for specific lesions.
