Summaries for Lymphedema

MedlinePlus : 43 Lymphedema is the name of a type of swelling. It happens when lymph builds up in your body's soft tissues. Lymph is a fluid that contains white blood cells that defend against germs. It can build up when the lymph system is damaged or blocked. It usually happens in the arms or legs. Causes of lymphedema include Infection Cancer Scar tissue from radiation therapy or surgical removal of lymph nodes Inherited conditions in which lymph nodes or vessels are absent or abnormal Treatment can help control symptoms. It includes exercise, compression devices, skin care, and massage. NIH: National Cancer Institute

MalaCards based summary : Lymphedema, also known as lymphoedema, is related to lymphedema, hereditary, ii and yellow nail syndrome, and has symptoms including angina pectoris, chest pain and edema. An important gene associated with Lymphedema is FLT4 (Fms Related Tyrosine Kinase 4), and among its related pathways/superpathways are VEGF Pathway (Qiagen) and Signaling events mediated by VEGFR1 and VEGFR2. The drugs Penicillin V and Albendazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include Heart, lymph node and skin, and related phenotypes are Decreased viability in esophageal squamous lineage and cardiovascular system

CDC : 3 Lymphatic filariasis, considered globally as a neglected tropical disease, is a parasitic disease caused by microscopic, thread-like worms. The adult worms only live in the human lymph system. The lymph system maintains the body’s fluid balance and fights infections. Lymphatic filariasis is spread from person to person by mosquitoes.
