Introduction: Lymphangiosarcoma

Description of Lymphangiosarcoma

Lymphangiosarcoma: A type of cancer that begins in the cells that line lymph vessels.
Source: National Institute of Health

Lymphangiosarcoma: A malignant tumor originating from the endothelial cells of lymphatic vessels. Most lymphangiosarcomas arise in an arm secondary to radical mastectomy but they sometimes complicate idiopathic lymphedema. The lymphedema has usually been present for 6 to 10 years before malignant changes develop. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1866)
