We report on a male infant with lymphedema, facial anomalies, intestinal lymphangiectasia consistent with a diagnosis of Hennekam syndrome. Lymphedema was particularly severe in the periorbital region, on the lower arms and lower legs, and on the penis and scrotum. The condition was diagnosed very shortly after the patient's birth. We review the literature, consisting of fourteen cases reported.
