The lymphangioma circumscriptum is a subtype of lymhangioma that formed by dilated lymphatic channels lined with endothel. Vulvar
localization is rare. A 23-year-old woman admitted to our hospital with an excessive and irreguler bleeding. Clinical examination revealed welldefined, papulovesicular lesions over the vulva. Histologic examination of the lesion showed lymphangioma circumscriptum. It is reported with literature datas because of rare localization and clinical and histopathological similarity with some lesions.
