Abstract

The decongestive lymphatic therapy is recommended by the International Society of Lymphology, the International Union of Phlebology and the International Lymphoedema Framework as the conservative treatment of choice in the lymphedema patients. This method enables effective treatment even in patients with difficult and complicated lymphedema. We present a case of a young man with a massive, primary right lower limb lymphedema, effectively treated with the DLT.
