Nonne-Milroy syndrome is a rare genetic disorder mainly with autosomic dominant trasmission, characterized by primary lymphedema generally of the leg and the foot at one or both sides. Lymphedema is apparent from birth and sometimes affects also the hands and rarely male genitalia, and persists for life. Four cases of Nonne-Milroy syndrome, with different clinical pictures, observed in the last fifteen years, in Pediatric Department University «La Sapienza» of Rome, are reported.
