Primary lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva presenting as warty plaques.
Australas J Dermatol. 2019 Nov; 60(4):305-307.AJ

Abstract

Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a benign hamartomatous malformation involving the lymphatic system of skin and subcutaneous tissue. It can involve any part of the body with maximum predilection for proximal parts of limbs. Vulvar involvement is quite infrequent. Based on the aetiopathogenesis, it can be either primary or secondary, with the secondary form being relatively more common in vulva. We report an exceedingly rare case of primary lymphangioma circumscriptum in a post-menopausal female presenting with multiple warty, papulo-nodular lesions on both labia majora. The patient was diagnosed histopathologically and managed surgically by wide local excision with primary closure.
