Lymphoedema of the leg. Close-up of the swollen leg of an 83-year-old patient affected by lymphoedema. Lymphoedema is localised fluid retention 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.
