NIH Rare Diseases:43 Milroy disease is a lymphatic disease that causes swelling (lymphedema) in the lower legs and feet soon after birth. other symptoms may include accumulation of fluid in the scrotum, abnormalities of the urethra, upslanting toenails, deep creases in the toes, wart-like growths, prominent leg veins, and cellulitis. gene mutations in the flt4 gene cause some cases of milroy disease, however for many cases the cause of the disorder is unknown. last updated: 7/29/2011

MalaCards: Hereditary Lymphedema, also known as milroy disease, is related to lymphedema, congenital and lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome. An important gene associated with Hereditary Lymphedema is FLT4 (fms-related tyrosine kinase 4), and among its related pathways are VEGF Signaling Pathway and VEGF Family Ligands and Receptor Interactions. Related mouse phenotypes are digestive/alimentary and mortality/aging.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Milroy disease is a condition that affects the normal function of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system produces and transports fluids and immune cells throughout the body. Impaired transport with accumulation of lymph fluid can cause swelling (lymphedema). Individuals with Milroy disease typically have lymphedema in their lower legs and feet at birth or develop it in infancy. The lymphedema typically occurs on both sides of the body and may worsen over time.
