Cystic hygroma is a benign congenital malformation of the lymphatic system that occurs in infants or children younger than 2 years. Herein, we present a case of recurrent cystic hygroma in a 22-year-old woman. History revealed that she had a similar lesion in the left submandibular region when she was 2 years old and in the thyroid region seven years back. This case has been reported for its unusual occurrence in an adult, showing recurrences at different sites and presence of calcification.
