Case study - Leg oedema with a sinister cause. Swelling of the lower leg was noticed, but systemic features were absent. By Dr David Morris. by Dr David Morris Unilateral swelling from compression pelvic tumor or lymphoma), or lymphatic destruction (e.g., congenital vs. secondary from a tumor, radiation, age, body mass index, and the presenc Unilateral leg lymphoedema may occur secondary to radiation, surgery, compression by a tumour or early filariasis infection. Unilateral lower extremity lymphoedema has been reported as a rare initial presentation for lymphoma, mostly in women, usually without B-symptoms, and often with inguinal lymphadenopathies or abdominal masses
Distribution of edema: unilateral leg edema is generally due to a local cause such as deep vein thrombosis, venous insufficiency, or lymphedema. Bilateral edema can be due to a local cause or systemic disease, such as heart failure or kidney disease. Generalized edema is due to systemic disease . This results in reverse flow within the vein and in accumulation of fluid and pressure in the leg. Venous insufficiency can manifest as edema with or without varicose veins Unilateral swelling from compression or compromise of venous or lymphatic drainage can result from DVT, venous insufficiency, venous obstruction by tumor (e.g., tumor obstruction of the iliac.. The prevalence of LEE was significantly elevated after LND including the groin: 18.0% for pelvis and paraaortic; 20.2% for pelvis only; 50% for pelvis and groin, and 62.2% for groin only . Groin and pelvis is the critical area for LEE/LLL. Paraaortic LND is not a risk factor [5,6]. In this study, most of women with early ovarian cancer. A non-traumatic unilateral painful swollen leg is a common presentation in clinical practice and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) must be excluded. [ 1] However, up to 75% of clinically suspected cases of DVT often have alternative diagnoses. [ 2
Summarily, the exact incidence and prevalence of MTS are unknown as most of those cases are asymptomatic and require no treatment unless there is a significant compression that causes a leg swelling, as in this case. 1, 4, 5 This is a rare cause that deserves to be listed in the differential diagnosis of unilateral leg swelling 25-year-old female having asymptomatic edema of unilateral leg was provisionally diagnosed as a case of psoasabscess. Later, she turned out to be a case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This presentation is contrary to usual age andmode of presentation of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Common causes of leg swelling based on acuity and unilateral or bilateral symptoms are shown in Table 1. Table 1. Common causes of leg edema in the western world. also assess the venous anatomy in the abdomen and pelvis to look for thrombosis or compression by adjacent arteries or masses. Visualization of pelvic anatomy may be difficult for. Acute unilateral limb swelling is a common clinical problem that has a relatively wide differential diagnosis both by clinical and imaging studies, nevertheless, the diagnostic list may include conditions that have quite different treatment plans, this mandates early establishment of the correct diagnosis
Case Records of the Massachusetts General Hospital from The New England Journal of Medicine — Case 10-1992 — A 41-Year-Old Woman with a Swollen Left Leg, Pelvic Mass, and Bilateral Hydronephrosi The causes of chronic unilateral leg swelling include common manifestations such as venous insufficiency, varicosis, deep vein thrombosis, and persistent cellulitis, less commonly are secondary lymphedema (tumor, radiation, and surgery), pelvic tumors or lymphoma causing pressure on the veins, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy, and rarely congenital venous malformation, pregnancy, and iliac vein compression syndrome. 1, While all of the leg veins with the lower inferior vena cava can be affected, the popliteal and superficial femoral veins are most frequently involved (, 34). Pain, aching, swelling, and ulceration can result from varicosities or venous malformations in Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome patients (, 24) The presence of unilateral leg swelling and ipsilateral hydronephrosis increases the likelihood of the diagnosis of an intra-abdominal compressive mass suspect that compresses the ureter and venous system of the affected side. Bedside PoCUS can lead to specific clinical hypotheses and accelerate the diagnosis and treatment of patients A 28-year-old woman with a 2-yr history of unilateral chronic leg swelling, initially thought to be secondary to deep vein thrombosis, later thought to be due to congenital venous malformation, eventually developed a pelvic mass, which was biopsied by fine-needle aspiration

Non vascular or lymphatic General disease states : Cardiac failure from any cause . Liver failure Leg swelling is a rare, but recognised, presentation of chronic urinary retention. Delay in arriving at the diagnosis could lead to consequences of chronic urinary retention, namely renal failure and hyperkalaemia. Routine abdominal examination in patients presenting with unilateral leg swelling is always advocated Common causes of leg swelling based on acuity and unilateral or bilateral symptoms are shown in Table 1. Superficial vein thrombosis Mass/tumorc Bilateral infections Lymphedema cCan occur in the pelvis or extremity. If chronic, more likely to be benign Varicose veins caused by an abdominal or pelvic mass may be more likely if there is unilateral varicose veins or leg swelling. Ask about previous varicose vein treatment or venous thromboembolism, as this may affect venous system function and anatomy and can influence future treatment options

Edward I. Bluth. Patients who present with leg swelling with pain or edema are of great clinical concern because they are at risk for having acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Acute DVT is an important public health problem because it affects over 20 million individuals yearly in the United States . Oedema in angio-oedema is mainly restricted to the face and lips, although any part of the body may be affected. Hydroceles: fluid often accumulates in the scrotal sac - eg, in nephrotic syndrome. Pitting-dependent oedema will become sacral if bed-bound
Pelvic mass, which may be due to Other vascular causes of extremity swelling — Unilateral lower extremity swelling is also a feature of venous insufficiency that is not due to iliac vein compression and also of unilateral peripheral lymphedema. However, it is essential for clinicians to regard the venous system of the lower extremity as a.

The condition occurs when the psoas muscle—the long muscle (up to 16 inches) in your back—is injured. The psoas muscle is located in the lower lumbar region of the spine and extends through the pelvis to the femur. This muscle works by flexing the hip joint and lifting the upper leg towards the body Unilateral means that the swelling appears only on one leg, while bilateral means that both legs are swollen. Sometimes, it is actually very hard to tell one from the other. In some cases of bilateral leg swelling, one leg might appear bigger than the other one, thus looking like unilateral leg swelling

Introduction. A scrotal lump is an abnormal mass or swelling within the scrotum.They can originate from either testicular or extra-testicular sources.. The presentation covers a wide range of pathology, therefore a good understanding of the differentiating features can aid in diagnosis, planning of suitable investigations, and the subsequent management Unilateral testicular swelling can occur due to the same reasons you may have bilateral testicular swelling torsion, infection, fluid collection, hernia so it is not very helpful in determining the etiology. More useful in evaluating the acute swelling is the nature and timing of the onset of pain, the particular area of the testicle that is.
