Abstract :

Acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum is a superficial lymphatic dilatation caused by a wide range of scarring processes. Histologically indistinguishable from congenital lymphangioma circumscriptum and occurs in all age groups, in adults as a late sequel of surgery, radiation therapy and scrofluderma. Patients usually present with numerous translucent vesicles in a chronic lymph edematous area several years after the primary pathology. I present a 22 years old female patient with the diagnosis of acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum of vulva admitted to our hospital by internist with an impression of genital warts, she had had bilateral inguinal discharging wound that diagnosed as a case of scrofluderma eight months prior to her presentation and started on anti-TB therapy and healed with typical scrofluderma scars, the vulva lesions start to appear two months after initiation of anti TB therapy.
