Lymphangiomas are congenital lesions of the lymphatic system which are most commonly found in the head and neck, with over 90 % of lesions manifesting in children who are less than 2 years of age. Haemolymphangiomas are rare variant of lymphangioma, with the presence of red blood cells within the lymphatic channels. Laryngeal sites are usually in continuity with foci of disease in the neck. In general, symptoms are non–specific and they vary with the site and size of the mass. Usually, they occur before 2 years of age. Isolated cases of lymphangiomas with involvement of epiglottis are rare and only a few cases have been reported so far. We are reporting the case of a six-year-old girl who presented with a mass in the epiglottis.
