Lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva.
Cutis. 2001 Mar; 67(3):229-32.C

Abstract

Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a benign disease of the lymph ducts and an unusual pathologic process that rarely affects the vulva. The etiology of this lesion is not clear, but obstruction of the lymph vessels has been suggested as a possible cause in some cases. We report the case of a 44-year-old woman with lesions similar to lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva and chronic idiopathic lymphedema of the lower right limb. Because there was no obvious cause, we propose that the lymphangioma was caused by the lymphedema.
