Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study presents an unusual case of primary lymphedema of the upper extremity in a healthy 28-year-old woman. The onset of swelling of the left upper extremity was observed at birth, but was not accurately diagnosed until the patient visited our department. Diagnostic assessment included evaluating the patient's history and laboratory and radiological data, which were all normal except for the swollen upper extremity and the lymphoscintigraphy findings. The patient was diagnosed as suffering from primary lymphedema of her left arm. Complete decongestive therapy was done and her swelling mildly improved.
