A story of oedemas.

Ann Biol Clin (Paris) 2018 Dec;76(6):681-685

The Waldmann's disease is a primitive intestinal lymphangectasia. This exsudative enteropathy initiates a protein leakage by the digestive tract. Clinically, this syndrome is characterised by oedemas and biologically by hypoprotidemia and loss of lymphocytes T CD4+, which increases a risk for infections. Here, we describe a patient's case for whom the protein loss was aggravated by a nephrotic syndrome.
