Retroperitoneum, pelvis and scrotum are unusual sites of lymphangiomas. Retroperitoneal lymphangiomas presenting as inguino-scrotal masses are extremely rare. An unusual case of retroperitoneal lymphangioma extending into scrotum, presenting as acute scrotum is reported due to its unusual location. Complete surgical excision with careful attention to avoid damaging contiguous structures is the treatment of choice.
