Abstract

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a defect of lymphatic channels in the deep dermis and subcutaneous layers, characterized by grouped vesicles. This disorder rarely occurs in vulvar sites. We present a rare case of LC in a 72-year-old patient who presented with a vulvar mass and ipsilateral leg edema.
