Broad term: This represents a number of conditions which affect the lymphatic channels and/or lymph nodes. Although not exclusive to lymphatic diseases, many patients suffer from chronic edema of a variable level of severity. Some conditions are congenital or familial; however, secondary (acquired) causes are the most common such as those related to post-surgical effects (e.g Lymph node dissections).
