Abstract

Lymphaticovenous malformations are rare congenital anomalies leading to oozing, ulceration and recurrent infections. They are managed by a specialist multi-disciplinary team with compression garments, symptomatic treatments and options such as percutaneous sclerotherapy and debulking procedures. Limited literature exists on the use of laser to seal the lymphatic vesicles. We present a 14 years old with a debilitating lymphaticovenous malformation of the hand for whom the risk of amputation was reduced by the use of carbon dioxide laser.
