Lymphangioma circumscriptum is an uncommon benign disorder of skin and subcutaneous tissues characterized by dilated lymphatic channels. It is an uncommon vascular tumor and it rarely becomes infected. We report a 20-year-old man who had an infected giant tumor in his left thigh. After an extensive resection and radiofrequency energy therapy, he recovered well with an acceptable cosmetic result. We followed up the patient for 2 years without any recurrence.
