The cutaneous lesions associated with reflux of lymphatic fluid and chyle from the skin have received little attention in the dermatologic literature. We describe a patient with such lesions, and discuss the clinical, histopathologic, and lymphangiographic manifestations. We review the classification of lymphedema and the commonly seen cutaneous lesions.
