Introduction: Cystic hygroma is a disorder in lymphatic vessel formation that involves the adjacent organs and can affect them due to its fast growing nature . The main treatment for cystic hygroma is surgical intervention that can have many complications after surgery. Treatments other than surgical interventions is the use of sclerosing agents. The goal of this study is to analyze the effect of Beliomycin in treating cystic hygroma . Materials and Methods: This quasi experimental study was carried out clinically at st-al Zahra and Kashanie hospitals of Isfahan from 1372 to 1383. A checklist including age, sex, cyst location, cystic hygroma volume before and after Beliomycin injection and/or surgery, was completed for each patient. Data was analyzed by T and paired T-Tests. p<0.05 was considered meaningful. Results:The study was carried out on 72 patients. 24 patients were treated with Beliomycin and 48 patient by surgery. Patients age was below 1 month up to 18 years old . Cystic hygroma was mainly located at neck region(46.8%). The average size of cystic hygroma was 103.9±29.66cm3 before Beliomycin injection and 34.91 16.19cm3 after that (p=0.004). and 43.511±7.81cm3 before surgery and 1.39±1.39 cm3 after that(p=0.006). The rate of recurrence of lymphingoma in the surgery treated group was 25.1% and in the group treated with Beliomycin was 29.2% with no significant difference. Conclusion: Regarding the considerable decrease in cyst volume after Beliomycin injection and it,s low complication compared to surgery, this method can be used as a primary treatment or supplementary to surgery.
