Elephantiasis: Causes, Tests and Treatment Options
by JP Smithson
Elephantiasis is a syndrome characterized by limb enlargement, especially the legs, arms and—in men—swelling of the scrotum, a condition called hydrocele.
The condition is caused by an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the lymph system (lymphedema). This concise book guides you through the causes of elephantiasis, diagnosis and available treatment options.
