In brief: Yes and No

About 70% 0f lymphangiomas are seen associatted with genetic syndromes.
It is frequently seen in patients with turner syndrome (x0) & occasionally seen in down syndrome (trisomy 21) and others. It also occurs sporadicly in otherwise normal kids. The largest one i ever saw was locates over the trunk and side of a normal kid.

In brief: Yes

Most lymphatic malformations are not associated with genetic disorders.
However, those that are diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound are frequently associated with chromosomal anomalies. These associations include down's syndrome, turner's syndrome, klippel-trenaunay syndrome, and congenital glaucoma.
