Abstract

Lymphatic malformations (LMs) are congenital abnormalities in the development of the lymphatic system. They can damage other structures including the airway, blood vessels, nerves, or bones. LMs of the face can result in malocclusion, and many patients with LMs of the face require orthognathic surgery to correct the malocclusion. Surgery-first is a treatment modality which should be considered for individuals with LMs and is a protocol in which orthognathic surgery is performed prior to orthodontic treatment. This case report describes surgery-first and subsequent orthodontic treatment in a patient with a class III malocclusion due to a large facial LM.
