A lymphangioma (or lymphatic malformation) is congenital proliferation of lymphatic vessels accounting for approximately 4 percent of vascular tumors and 25 percent of benign vascular tumors in children.1 One of the predominant types is lymphangioma circumscriptum consisting of multiple, grouped vesicles that may be pink, red, or black, owing to serosanguinous fluid or hemorrhage. These contain lymph fluid and are often said to resemble frogspawn. We present a case of lymphangioma circumscriptum on the right inguinal fold in a 15-year-old girl who was diagnosed clinically based on dermoscopy and histopathology and subsequently treated with sclerotherapy followed by radio frequency ablation.
