A 3-year-old male mixed-breed dog had swelling of the penile sheath, which developed after the dog was castrated at 1 year of age. Physical examination revealed pitting edema and multiple turgid vesicles on the prepuce and inguinal area. Histologic evaluation of the vesicles revealed thin epidermis elevated by dermal proliferation of dilated lymphatic channels. The diagnosis was acquired cutaneous lymphangiectasia. Clinical signs resolved concurrent with furosemide administration. Preputial swelling without vesicles recurred 1 and 2 years later and partially resolved after furosemide administration.
