Abstract

Cystic lymphangiomas are a benign tumor caused by lymphatic malformation. They are normally seen in the head and neck region and very rarely occur in the scrotum. We report a rare case of a 20-year-old man who presented with a gradually enlarging, painful scrotal mass which was identified ultrasonographically and histologically as a scrotal cystic lymphangioma and treated by surgical excision.
