ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a rare, uncommon, hamartomatous and benign lesion of no specific aetiology involving the lymphatic channels in the deep dermal and subcutaneous layers.(1) It can occur either as a congenital abnormality or as an acquired damage to previously normal lymphatic channels.(2) Lymphangiomas can occur anywhere on the skin and the mucous membranes. The most common sites are the head and the neck followed by the proximal extremities, the buttocks and the trunk. However, sometimes they can be found on the intestines, pancreas and the mesentery. Deeper cystic lesions usually occur in areas of loose areolar tissue; typically, the neck, the axilla and the groin. We report a rare case of congenital lymphangioma circumscriptum of left labia minora in an 18-year-old female.
