Lymphangiectasias of the skin: victims of confusing nomenclature.

Lymphangiectasias are known by a variety of names, in the dermatology literature, including lymphangiectasis, acquired lymphangiomas, secondary lymphangiomas and acquired lymphangioma circumscriptum, which has led to confusion. The condition itself, especially in the genital region, is difficult to diagnose. This article attempts to resolve the issues of the confusing nomenclature and reviews the condition, which can arise under a variety of clinical circumstances. The relevant anatomical and histological details are described, with relevant clinical illustrations, to facilitate understanding of the aetiopathogenesis of this enigmatic condition. The available medical and non-medical treatments are discussed.
