Abstract

Lymphedema is a condition characterized by generalization or regional accumulation of protein-rich interstitial fluid as a result of impaired lymphatic circulation due to congenital or acquired reasons. Lymphedema infection may occur as a result of secondary neoplasm, surgery, trauma, and radiation while most childhood cases are primary lymphedema. In cases of primary lymphedema, there is an erroneous development or function of the lymphatic system and most of them are thought to have a genetic predisposition. We aim to present a case of primary congenital lymphedema with a history of kinship between parents and no dysmorphic findings, born with lymphedema on both feet.

Abstract

Lenfödem; lenfatik dolaşımın konjenital veya edinsel bazı nedenlere bağlı olarak bozulması sonucu, proteinden zengin interstisiyel sıvının jeneralize veya bölgesel olarak birikimiyle karakterize bir durumdur. Lenfödem enfeksiyon, neoplazm, cerrahi, travma ve radyasyona sekonder olarak gelişebilirken, çocukluk çağındaki olguların çoğu primer lenfödem şeklindedir. Primer lenfödem olgularında lenfatik sistemin hatalı gelişimi veya işlevi söz konusudur ve çoğunda genetik yatkınlık olduğu düşünülmektedir. Amacımız, anne baba arasında akrabalık öyküsü olan ve dismorfik bulguları olmayan, her iki ayak sırtında lenfödem ile doğan, bir primer konjenital lenfödem olgusunu sunmaktır.
