One of my twin daughters was born with lymphangioma of the right leg and she has been treated 16 times with sclerotherapy. The size of her upper thigh has been reduced in size, but the bottom part of her leg and her knee are still very big. The sclerotherapy can no longer be performed as the lympnodes are now in vein like form and the needles used for injections cause her veins to collapse, therefore her treatment is at a stand still until she reaches the age 12. She can then opt to have plastic surgery to have the rest of lumps removed.
