Abstract

Milroy disease is a congenital onset lymphedema linked to FLT4 gene mutations in the tyrosine kinase domain. So far, a total of 59 different FLT4 variants have been identified. Here, we report a novel FLT4 gene mutation in a Chinese family with Milroy disease and present their clinical symptoms and MR lymphangiographic findings.

Keywords: Milroy disease, FLT4, VEGFR-3, primary lymphedema, novel gene mutation, MR lymphangiogram, phenotype
