Unusual case of lymphoedema in a morbidly obese patient.
Australas J Dermatol. 2007 May; 48(2):115-9.AJ

Abstract

A morbidly obese 57-year-old woman presented with dermatological complications of obesity including cellulitis and severe localized lymphoedema of the right leg. There were two large pedunculated masses on the right lateral thigh with early involvement of the left and overlying skin changes of chronic lymphoedema. Our patient's condition is clinically consistent with a new entity recently described in the surgical pathology literature as massive localized lymphoedema.
