Hereditary lymphedema genetic mutations found


University of Michigan scientists have identified genetic mutations that cause a serious medical condition called hereditary lymphedema-distichiasis or LD. Discovering the gene is the first step toward a future diagnostic test for LD and increased scientific understanding of the gene's impact
on early development of the heart and lymphatic system.
