Cystic lymphangioma is a benign, unencapsulated tumor caused by congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. It is a rare type of hematoma that unusually causes scrotal swelling. A 3-year-old boy presented with a painless swelling in his right hemiscrotum that gradually increased over a year. The swelling was clinically evaluated as a hydrocele, but a multi-localized cystic mass filled with hemorrhagic fluid was detected on surgical exploration. A complete excision was made and histopathological evaluation revealed cystic lymphangioma. As a result, cystic lymphangioma mimicking hydrocele can be seen in children. Although it is a rare type of tumor, this pathology should be suspected during the surgical operation in the groin area.
