Painless Swelling of both lower limbs   Posted By Dr. Ravinder Sidhu    Date : 23-Aug-01   03:17 AM     Reply

I seek the opinion of colleagues about a 20 days old new born male with marked painless swelling of both lower limbs upto knee joints since birth.There is no pitting.

No other obvious congenital deformity.

The picture could be seen on the web. This snap you will see is 15 days old and today when I saw him again the oedema had increased.

Any cardiac or renal abnormalty was ruled out by the paediatrician .

X-Ray lower limbs are normal.

Pleae advise further investigations and possible diagnosis
