Abstract
Congenital lymphedema is a rare disorder of unknown etiology which affects the extremities, preponderantly the lower extremities, at or immediately after birth. We experienced a case of congenital lymphedema in a newborn with generalized edema on the left lower extremity. We performed lymphangioscintigraphy and MRI for diagnosis. Microlymphaticovenous anastomosis was done on 16 days after birth and the patient showed clinical improvement. We report this case with brief review of the related literature.
Key Words: Congenital lymphedema, MRI, Lymphangioscintigraphy
