Lymphedema is swelling of a body part, most often an extremity, resulting from an accumulation of lymph fluids. Lymphedema occurs when the lymph vascular system is unable to effectively perform its function of re-absorption and transport. Lymphedema occurs when lymphatic vessels and nodes are removed, underdeveloped, obstructed, injured or overwhelmed. Lymphedema may be primary (congenital) or secondary (caused by a known condition).
Lymphedema can cause decreased mobility, discomfort and often repeated episodes of infections. It can lead to a feeling of self-consciousness, depression and impact quality of life.
Severe cases are associated with thickening of the skin, hardening of the tissue and massive swelling (Elephantiasis).
