Abstract

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is an uncommon, benign, cutaneous disorder that involves lymphatic dilatation to cause vesicular and papular lesions on the trunk, extremities, and anogenital areas. It may be a diagnostic challenge when appearing in the anogenital region and often is misdiagnosed and mistreated as infectious etiologies, which include molluscum contagiosum and condylomata accuminata. We report a healthy 40-year-old man with a six-month history of an eruption of multiple, asymptomatic, scrotal papules that were diagnosed as lymphangiomas. Awareness of scrotal LC in adult men without prior disease or symptoms is necessary for proper diagnosis and avoidance of unnecessary treatment.
