Caption: Lymphoedema following bandaging. Close-up of the leg of an 84-year-old female patient with chronic lymphoedema after removal of support bandaging. Lymphoedema is localised fluid retention (oedema) caused by a compromised lymphatic system. Lymph vessels carry lymph fluid round the body and are also part of the immune system. Lymphoedema may be inherited or caused by injury to the lymph vessels. Here, it was as a result of the bandaging compressing the lymph vessels.
