Acquired vulvar lymphangiomas: a sequela of radiation therapy.
Cutis. 2001 Mar; 67(3):239-40.C

Abstract

Lymphangiomas of the vulva are rare clinical entities. Acquired or secondary lymphangiomas have characteristically been reported after radiation therapy for cervical carcinoma and appear on the vulva years after this treatment. Local surgery, scrofuloderma, and Crohn's disease may also damage vulvar lymphatic flow and lead to the development of vulvar lymphangiomas. We report a case of acquired vulvar lymphangiomas that occurred in a patient 15 years after she received radiation therapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix.
