Generally, we associate lymphedema as a potential complication of lymphatic damage to either the inguinal nodes or abdominal nodes. Generally, this is expressed as leg lymphedema.

Here is the first report made on secdonary lymphedema with both erysipelas and pelvis surgery.

We report the case of a 58-year-old man with erysipelas of both buttocks secondary to lymphedema 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 and prevent a relapse.

Secondary lymphoedema of the lower leg as an unusual side-effect of a liquid silicone injection in the hips and buttocks.

We report an unusual case of secondary lymphoedema of the lower extremities as a result of injections of liquid silicone. A 30-year-old transsexual had received large-volume injections of silicone in the hips and buttocks for cosmetic purposes in order to obtain a female body form. Painful silicone granulomas developed in both the treated areas and areas outside the original injection location, and a progressive lymphoedema of feet and legs developed during a period of 5 years.
