Cutaneous lymphangioma circumscriptum, is a type of lymphangioma affecting skin, which is an uncommon benign tumour of lymphatic vessels. We report one such case in an 8 year old boy with an aspirate from a swelling having a warty skin surface in the left illiac fossa. It posed a diagnostic dilemma because of its cellularity and numerous small round cells, which were arranged in singly, in groups, sheets and in pseudo-rosette like pattern at places mimicking small round cell tumour. The initial cytologic diagnosis of a small round cell tumour possibly lymphoma was rendered. This case highlights the diagnostic pitfall encountered in the aspiration cytology of lymphatic tumours.
