Lymphangioma circumscriptum of the skin

JTHT Yu 余浩德 and KC Yau 游高照

Lymphangioma circumscriptum consists of persistent localised or diffused translucent and red vesicles. They are primary or acquired hamartomatous lymphatic malformations and can occur anywhere on the body. Destructive treatment is frequently unsuccessful and is characterised by rapid recurrence. Surgical excision is curative but often involves extensive area of skin. Observation of this benign entity is probably the best strategy.
