Lymphedema is swelling of a body part, usually a limb, due to accumulation of lymph fluid from obstructed flow of the lymphatics. It may be primary or secondary. Primary lymphedema is due to a congenital deformity of the lymphatic system. ¬ěSecondary lymphedema usually results from a trauma to the lymphatic system.
