Minerva medica
M SaviL Migone


Two cases of Fabry's disease (FD) with lymphedema of the lower limbs are reported. On the basis of lymphographic investigations showing lymphatic aplasia, the hypothesis of an inborn error in the development of the lymphatic system of the lower limbs--Familial Lymphedema--controlled by a gene associated with FD gene on the same chromosome, is suggested.
