Abstract

Unusual angiomatous or lymphangiomatous vascular malformations are rarely seen. One of them is lymphangioma (LA), which is a rare benign lymphovascular abnormality. LA is usually seen in the types of circumscriptum (or capillary), cavernous and cystic. Here, we report a unique case of LA with a patchy appearance. The patient presented due to unusual symptoms and eccentric clinical manifestation of the lesion. Here, we present a new lymphatic entity which was diagnosed as LA with its clinical, radiological and pathological findings. Written informed consent of the patient was obtained for this report. To the best of our knowledge this macular form of cutaneous LA has not been previously reported in literature. Macular LA should be kept in mind when faced with a colored long-term macular lesion on the skin.
