Lymphatic swelling of the lower limbs - Lymphedema

Lymphatic swelling of the lower extremities, also known as lower extremity lymphedema, is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the soft tissues of the feet and ankles. This condition occurs due to a disruption or blockage in the lymphatic system leading to inefficient lymph drainage.
Diagnosis of this condition is usually made based on clinical examinations, patient history and imaging methods such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. Methods such as lymphography may also be used to confirm the diagnosis.

Causes

  • Surgery disrupting the lymphatic system
  • Some infectious diseases
  • Hereditary predisposition
  • Cancer illnesses
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)

Symptoms

  • Swelling and enlargement of the affected limb
  • A feeling of heaviness or tension in the legs
  • Limited mobility
  • A feeling of pain or an unpleasant tingling sensation
  • Skin changes, including browning or thickening
