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 is related to hereditary lymphedema i and lymphedema, hereditary, ii, and has symptoms including angina pectoris, edema and chest pain. An important gene associated with Lymphedema is FLT4 (Fms Related Tyrosine Kinase 4), and among its related pathways/superpathways are VEGF Pathway (Qiagen) and Heart Development. The drugs Mekinist and Ketoprofen have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include Heart, breast and lymph node, and related phenotypes are Decreased viability in esophageal squamous lineage and homeostasis/metabolism

CDC : 3 People with the disease can suffer from lymphedema and elephantiasis and in men, swelling of the scrotum, called hydrocele. Lymphatic filariasis is a leading cause of permanent disability worldwide. Communities frequently shun and reject women and men disfigured by the disease. Affected people frequently are unable to work because of their disability, and this harms their families and their communities.
