Management of chronic lymphedema of the lower extremity
Vascular Surgery: Cases, Questions and Commentaries
© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. A 19 year old female was brought in to the Emergency Room (ER) in a "septic shock" condition with massively swollen bilateral lower limbs (Fig. 56.1). This patient was well known to the ER staff for many years with recurrent episodes of systemic sepsis often triggered by local cellulitis and/or erysipelas involving one of her swollen limbs. The intervals between her sepsis got shorter lately and the control of her sepsis became more difficult, to manage.
