Surgical management of penoscrotal lymphangioma circumscriptum

Plast Reconstr Surg. 1999 Jan;103(1):175-8. doi: 10.1097/00006534-199901000-00028.


Lymphangioma circumscriptum of the penis and scrotum is an unusual entity that may be indistinguishable from genital warts. After confirmation of the diagnosis, a treatment plan consisting of wide excision should be outlined. To lower the chance of recurrence, not only the affected skin but all the subjacent subcutaneous tissue, including the deeper components of the lymphatic malformation just above the deep fascia, should be removed.
