Caption: Feet in podoconiosis. Close-up of the swollen feet of a person with podoconiosis - a disease of the lymph vessels that is caused by chronic exposure to irritant soils. The condition is characterised by lymphoedema - a collection of fluid in the lymph vessels caused by a compromised lymphatic system, which leads to tissue swelling.
