PODOCONIOSIS, NON-FILARIAL ELEPHANTIASIS, AND LYMPHOLOGY

Author

Abstract

Several recent reviews of podoconiosisal ready exist in journals and on public access websites. After briefly covering the historical and epidemiological background, this narrative review will therefore attempt explicitly to link podoconiosis with lymphology, examining gaps in what is known of pathogenesis and identifying the areas of research in which input from lymphologists is most required. Finally, prevention and treatment will be described and the need for operational research to optimize community-based interventions outlined.

Keywords: podoconiosis, elephantiasis, lymphedema, soil
