Acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva.
Dermatol Online J 2007; 13(4):10DO

Abstract

Lymphangiomas are rare benign proliferations of the lymphatic system. Acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva is induced by impaired lymph flow. We describe a new case of lymphangioma circumscriptum resulting from tuberculosis involving a lymph node. A 45-year-old female presented with swelling of the vulva for the past 8 years. She had a history of multiple left inguinal swellings successfully treated with four antituberculosis drugs. Her vulval swelling did not respond and was diagnosed as acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum. She becomes the fifth reported case of acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva with tubercular lymphadenitis. The single antituberculosis treatment is insufficient to control lymphangioma. Ablative methods seem encouraging.
