Acquired Progressive Lymphangioma of the foot
My son was diagnosed with "acquired progressive lymphangioma" on the sole of his right foot 12 years ago at the age of 15. His condition has gotten gradually worse since diagnosis causing him severe pain that is not managed with pain medication. We have tried many doctors and treatments and have not had any success. I was so glad to come across your foundation and realize that he is not alone and there may be hope for treatment. Does anyone have any recommendations for doctors or procedures that have successfully treated this condition? We are in Houston, Texas but will gladly travel to wherever there is successful treatment that can help him as the chronic pain has taken a real toll on him. Thank you in advance for any help or advice that you can provide.

Hi and welcome!

Go to and ask the lymphatic expert. He would be the best one to give advice.
