Lymphatics are small vessels that carry fluid from the tissue back to the body’s circulation. Although they’re tiny, they can cause big problems for kids when they don’t work right.
For a long time, doctors didn’t understand how to diagnose or treat lymphatic disease. Thanks to recent advances in technology, we can now see these small vessels and fix them.
