Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is anuncommon, benign, cutaneous disorder thatinvolves lymphatic dilatation to cause vesicularand papular lesions on the trunk, extremities, andanogenital areas. It may be a diagnostic challengewhen appearing in the anogenital region andoften is misdiagnosed and mistreated as infectiousetiologies, which include molluscum contagiosumand condylomata accuminata. We report a healthy40-year-old man with a six-month history of aneruption of multiple, asymptomatic, scrotal papulesthat were diagnosed as lymphangiomas. Awarenessof scrotal LC in adult men without prior disease orsymptoms is necessary for proper diagnosis andavoidance of unnecessary treatment.
