In brief: Yes.
This is a congenital multiloculated lymphatic lesion that can arise anywhere.
It is classically found in the left posterior triangle of the neck, and contains large cyst like cavities withy watery fluid. This is benign, but a lethal version, cowchock wapner kurtz syndrome, causes cystic hygroma, lymphedema and cleft palate. This can be seen in adults, and people can live normal lives.
