Lymphedema

Abstract
Lymphatic vascular insufficiency leads to swelling that extends to the digits. It can be primary or secondary to surgery, trauma, infection and cancer. There is multi-pronged treatment for this disabling condition. In addition, it can be associated with many vascular anomalies and, most worrisome, can rarely transform to lymphangiosarcoma.
