Swollen legs in paediatric age: a case of primary lymphedema praecox
Key words: Swollen legs, Primary lymphedema praecox, Paediatric age
A case of a 3-year-old child admitted to our unit because of a localized swelling on the right leg is reported. Family and personal anamneses were negative for relevant pathologies or analogous episodes and no trauma had occurred in the previous days. The unilaterality and the features of the oedema as well as laboratory and instrumental analyses allowed a primary lymphedema praecox, which is a very rare pathology in paediatric age, to be diagnosed.
