The Genetics of Lymphedema
When I originally became active in online groups, blogs and websites, there were only two genes identified as being involved with causing hereditary lymphedema.
Now, eight specific genes have been identified as causing several hereditary lymphedema syndromes and associated syndromes with lymphatic malformations.
At our main website Lymphedema People, we have complete information pages on each one:
Lymphedema Gene CCBE1
Lymphedema Gene FLT4
Lymphedema Gene FOXC2
Lymphedema Gene GATA2
Lymphedema Gene GJC2
Lymphedema Gene KIF11
Lymphedema Gene SOX18
Lymphedema Gene VEGFC
