A case of large vulval lesion extending from mons pubis to anterior half of perineum presenting in labor in a 27 year old second gravida with term pregnancy. History revealed an onset of vulval swelling within 3 months of starting antituberculosis treatment for cervical tuberculous lymphadenopathy at the age of 25 years. There was no associated inguinal lymphadenopathy or edema of the legs.

Cesarean section was performed, anticipating difficulty in suturing the perineal tear with vaginal delivery. Biopsy revealed a diagnosis of vulval lymphangiectasia.

Though various treatment modalities are available, complete resolution of the lesion remains a challenge. Awareness among healthcare workers and early diagnosis and intervention could avoid the extension of the lesion and its sequel in labor.
