  • 1Department of Dermatology, Hanyang University Guri Hospital, Guri, Korea


While lymphangioma circumscriptum may present anywhere on the body, the vulva is a rare site. However, vulvar involvement can occur in some clinical settings, and Crohn’s disease is one of the underlying etiologies of acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum. A 31-year-old woman presented with an 8-year history of widespread verruciform plaques on her vulva. She complained of a mild itching sensation at the lesion site. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 11 years prior but had not been treated. She had no history of trauma or surgery in the perineal area and no familial history of cancer or hereditary disorders. The histopathologic findings were consistent with lymphangioma. Based on the clinicopathologic findings, the patient was diagnosed with lymphangioma circumscriptum on the vulva. Herein, we report a rare case of acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum of the vulva mimicking condyloma acuminatum in a patient with Crohn’s disease.
