Meige"s syndrome I; here is some confusion among authors about what is what with Meige’s syndrome, Milroy’s syndrome, Nonne’s syndrome and Nonne-Milroy-Meige syndrome; According to one author, hereditary lymphoedema type II is the Meige syndrome; hereditary lymphoedema I is the Nonne-Milroy syndrome, also commonly referred to as Milroy disease; Some authors still combine these into a single syndrome, the Nonne-Milroy-Meige syndrome;Meige"s disease;

Milroy"s disease; Nonne’s syndrome; Nonne-Milroy syndrome

Meige"s syndrome I; Chronic hereditary trophoedema, chronic hereditary lymphoedema, congenital elephantiasis, congenital lymphedema, elephantiasis congenita hereditaria (Nonne); familial hereditary oedema, hereditary lymphedema I (Nonne-Milroy); hereditary lymphedema II (Meige), hereditary tropholymphoedema syndrome; idiopathic hereditary lymphedema, lymphoedema; lymphedema, early onset type; trophoedema hereditarium (chronicum extremitatum inferiorum); tropholymphoedema;

Chronic familial lymphoedema of the limbs, which manifests with pittings and brawny swellings (lymphoedema) of the ankles and shins; Often associated with inflammation and various defects, including distichiasis, extradural cysts, vertebral anomalies, cerebrovascular malformations, yellow nails, and sensorineural hearing loss; Congenital or onset in first or second decade of life; It is due to inadequate lymph flow through an anatomically abnormal lymphatic system; Prevalent in females (70-80%); Pain, sometimes severe, is a common feature; Autosomal dominant inheritance with variable expressivity; There is a lot of confusion about the correct term for this condition; According to some authors the term Nonne-Milroy-Meige syndrome is obsolete, as this is really two distinct entities, Hereditary lymphedema I (Nonne-Milroy syndrome) with onset at birth to 35 years of age; and hereditary lymphedema type II (Meige syndrome) with onset after 35 years; -------------
