Superficial lymphangiomas are either cavernous type, diffuse or circumscribed (circumscriptum). Lymphangima circumscriptum (LC) is a rare benign condition characterized by the appearance of persistent clusters in the skin and subcutaneous tissue which may contain fluctuant cysts1. The first
reported description ofLC was done by Fox and Fox2 in1878. They named it as lymphangiectodes2. The term LC is first used by Morris3 in1889. Complete surgical excision is the main treatment. Here we are reporting a case of lymphangioma circumscritum of the thigh in a six-year old girl.
