Abstract

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a defect of lymphatics in deep dermis. This abnormal saccular dilatation of lymphatics occurs in dermal papillae visible as vesicles clinically. The entity may be acquired or congenital. The occurrence of congenital variety of LC in vulva is extremely rare, with only few cases reported in the literature. We communicate one such case presenting as recurrent vulval growth along with a review of literature and treatment modalities.
