Vulval dermatoses pose a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the dermatologists. Lymphangioma Circumscriptum (LC) is a form of lymphangioma affecting the skin and subcutaneous tissues that is characterised by benign dilation of lymphatic channels. This uncommon condition is known to occur over the chest, mouth, axilla, tongue, and rarely in the vulva. In this series, authors presented three cases of LC of vulva in women between the age group of 45 to 60 years with late-onset fluid-filled lesions over the vulva. The first case had history of hysterectomy prior to onset of lesions, the second case had a spontaneous onset of lesions while the third was a suspected case of pelvic tuberculosis with secondary lymphangioma.
