In the Italian scientific bibliographic panorama very few works have been published on lymphology, in particular lymphedema and lipedema. The present volume is the first also dedicated to patients with lymphedema and lipedema, pathologies still frequently confused medically. The text aims to offer patients and health professionals involved in the treatment of these conditions a simple and at the same time comprehensive tool to illustrate the deep origins of the two conditions, their diagnosis and differential diagnosis, the therapeutic possibilities and prognosis.


Domenico Corda Born in Dorgali but a Pavian by adoption, he lives and works in Pavia where ha graduated with honors in Medicine and Surgery. A specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and in Medical Hydrology, he is head of Polimedica Lanfranco, the clinic dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of phlebo-lipo-lymphostatic diseases. For some twenty years he has been offering his patients a personalized decongestive treatment, accompanying them throughout the entire rehabilitation process, from diagnosis to therapy.
