We present an interesting case of acquired cutaneous lymphangiectasia of vulva following tubercular lymphadenitis. This was a young lady who initially had cervical lymphadenitis proven positive for tuberculosis on needle aspiration cytology and received Anti-tubercular Treatment. Soon after completion of therapy, she developed large oozing lesions on the vulva. There was initial diagnostic dilemma which was cleared on biopsy which confirmed acquired lymphangiectasis. Her symptoms were finally relieved with simple vulvectomy and she was doing well in two years of follow up. She had also conceived her second pregnancy by the end of second year of follow up.
