Abstract

The authors describe the case of a newborn and their family with Nonne-Milroy disease (hereditary lymphedema type I), a genetic disease that is usually characterized by lymphedema, that most often affects the lower extremities or less frequently the back of the hands. We discuss etiology, inheritance pattern, differential diagnosis and follow-up.
