Benign lymphangioendothelioma is an uncommon locally infiltrative lymphatic tumour, presenting as a slow-growing, asymptomatic, reddish-violaceous macule or plaque. Histopathologically, it is characterized by thin-walled endothelial-lined spaces that are interspersed between strands of collagen. It must be recognized and differentiated from angiosarcoma, early Kaposiís sarcoma, in view of major differences in treatment and prognosis. A 24-year-old female presented with a raised lesion over the left leg since 2 years which was associated with minimal itching. Biopsy of the lesion showed thin walled vascular channels lined by single layer of bland endothelial cells at the dermo-epidermal junction, few vessels in the dermis.
