Based on the investigation or attribution of the cause in children, lesions of the head and neck can be divided into different categories. Infection, Trauma, neoplasm, or congenital origin are some of the cause of lesions. The hemangioma, Lymphangiomas and cystic hygroma in children, are the widespread benign neoplasm. In children, the malignant neoplasms may include neuroblastoma, lymphoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma. The abnormal growth of cells like primary or metastatic masses in the head and neck, thyroid and parathyroid lesions, or the traumatic injuries of the head and neck represents malignant neoplasm. This chapter discusses the common congenital head and neck malformations as well as inflammatory lesions.
