Cavernous lymphangioma of the vulva. A case report.
J Reprod Med 2002; 47(12):1041-3JR

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Lymphangioma is a rare cause of a vulvar mass. Two types of lympangioma involving the vulva have been described: lymphangioma circumscriptum and cavernous lymphangioma. Cavernous lymphangioma has been reported much less frequently than lymphangioma circumscriptum in association with the vulva.

CASE

A cavernous lymphangioma was diagnosed in a 19-year-old nullipara who had a history of a gradually expanding vulvar mass. The mass was removed surgically, with no postoperative complications or recurrences to date.

CONCLUSION

Cavernous lymphangioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a vulvar mass and can be treated successfully with surgical excision.
