ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Lymphangioma circumscriptum is characterised by dilation of lymphatic vessels in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It presents with asymptomatic vesicles filled with lymphatic fluid and characteristic frog spawn appearance. The common sites are axillary folds, shoulder, upper arm, scrotum, penis, rectum and vulva. It needs to be differentiated from certain common conditions like herpes zoster, molluscum contagiosum, haemangioma, verruca vulgaris and angiokeratoma. Surgical modality is the first choice of treatment. A case of 5-year-old girl having verrucous plaque on right knee joint diagnosed as lymphangioma circumscriptum on histopathology is presented here.
