[Vulvar lymphangiectasis 14 years after treatment for epidermoid carcinoma of the cervix. Treatment with cryosurgery].
Ann Dermatol Venereol 1996; 123(2):96-9AD

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Lymphangiectasia are different from lymphangioma because they arise following damage to the deeper lymphatic vessels. No clinical or histological features are known to distinguish lymphangioma from lymphangiectasia.

CASE REPORT

We report a case of vulvar lymphangiectasia occurring 14 years after therapy of squamous carcinoma of the cervix (surgery and post-operative radiotherapy). Our treatment was cryosurgery.

DISCUSSION

We analysed the 12 case reports of vulvar lymphangiectasia in the literature, emphasizing misleading clinical aspect of the warty lesions and the risk of repeated infection justifying an appropriate treatment. We propose cryosurgery which provides real benefits with a minimal trauma.
