Lymphangioma circumscriptum of glans penis: a report of two cases


Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a developmental anomaly of lymphatic vessels, which appear as aggregates of clear or hemorrhagic vesicles on the skin or mouth. Glans penis involvement is very uncommon. Because of the sensitivity of the area, possible functional, cosmetic, or psychologic disturbances can result. Lymphangioma circumscriptum is rarely found on this location; hence, vigilance and awareness of this entity is necessary for a swift and proper diagnosis. Two cases are presented on the account of their rarity and unique representation.
