A clas­sifi­ca­tion of dys­pla­sias of the lym­phat­ic ­system is pro­posed on the basis of the ana­tom­i­cal structures ­involved: lymph ves­sel-angio­dys­pla­sia, lymphadeno(nodal)-dys­pla­sia and the sum­mary of both lymphangio-adeno(nodal)dys­pla­sias. The sug­gest­ed ter­mi­nol­o­gy is: LAD I (Lymphangiodysplasias), LAD II (Lymphadeno-(nodal)dys­pla­sia) and LAAD (lymphadeno(nodal)-dys­pla­sia). With this clas­sifi­ca­tion we may coher­ent­ly group the mal­for­ma­tions we ­already know, ­relate them to the big syndromes and to all the other angio­dys­pla­sias and also ­create the ref­er­ence back­ground for ­another chap­ter of lym­phol­o­gy: pri­mary or idiopath­ic lym­phed­e­ma.
