According to the Levison classification , which originally classified the adrenal cysts into subtypes, adrenal cysts are distinguished into parasitic cysts, caused mostly by Echinococcus species; true glandular or retention cysts; lymphangiectatic
cysts or cystic hemangiomas, due to ectasia of preexisting vessels; and finally, pseudocysts .
Histopathological examination of the surgical specimen showed typical features of a lymphangiectatic fibrolipomatous polyp.
They sometimes carry different names such as lymphangioma, hamartomatous tonsillar polyp, lymphangiomatous polyp, lymphangiectatic fibrous polyp, lymphangiectatic fibrolipomatous polyp, and so on according to their stromal components (2).
The overall histopathology of the lesion was reported as "lymphangiectatic fibrolipomatous polyp," and the left tonsillectomy material was reported as "chronic tonsillitis".
Lymphangiectatic fibrolipomatous polyps of the palatine tonsil are rare benign tumors that generally cause a lumpy feeling in the throat region but might also lead to obstructive symptoms.
lymphangiomatous, lymphangiectatic, telangiectatic and keloidal variants among others.
2), 1 telangiectatic and 5 lymphangiectatic variants were documented.
Reports in the literature use different nomenclature when referring to these lesions, such as tonsillar lymphangiomatous polyp, angioma, angiofibroma, fibrolipoma, polypoid tumor containing fibroadipose tissue, hamartomatous tonsillar polyp, and lymphangiectatic fibrous polyp.
Lymphangiectatic fibrous polyp of the palatine tonsil: a report of three cases.
Lymphangiectatic fibrolipomatous polyp of the palatine tonsil.
There are also several lymphedematous variants, best classified according to their association with ectatic lymphatics (lymphangioma-like KS and lymphangiectatic
KS) or due to the accumulation of dermal and/or intradermal edema (bullous KS).
