Abstract

We report the case of a 58-year-old man with erysipelas of both buttocks secondary to lymphoedema after pelvis surgery for prostatic cancer and multiple vascular interventions for iliofemoral thrombosis. The diagnosis was based on clinical examination and lymphoscintigraphy. This location of lymphoedema, limited to the buttocks, is uncommon; lower limbs are usually affected. This location needs a specific curative and preventive treatment, including antibiotic therapy, lymphatic drainage and contention to abate the condition andprevent a relapse. © 2005 Elsevier SAS.
