We present a case with complications of a LM highlighting the need for early intervention for these lesions. A 19 year old male presented with watery discharge from the skin over a left thigh swelling since childhood. He was diagnosed to have an extratruncular Lymphatic Malformation (LM). Treatment was deferred. He presented with necrosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissue after 3 months requiring debridement and split thickness skin more
