Cystic lymphangiomas are usually congenital malformations of draining lymphatic channels with most common sites including neck, axilla, mediastinum and retroperitoneum. Occurrence of lymphangiomas in scrotum or inguinal region is a rare entity and epididymal origin of these lesions is even more infrequent. We herein report a case of epididymal lymphangioma detected on USG, which developed after surgical abdominal lymph nodal dissection in an adult patient of carcinoma rectum presenting as painless scrotal swelling.
