The aim of the present study was to report a case series involving the treatment of primary congenital lymphedema using the Godoy method. Eight children (seven girls and one boy) with primary congenital lymphedema of the upper limbs treated at the Godoy Clinic. A retrospective clinical trial was conducted to evaluate treatment for primary congenital lymphedema of the upper limbs in children using the Godoy & Godoy lymphatic therapy method.
The first treatment option for all children was cervical lymphatic therapy. The mothers were trained in the technique under the supervision of the team and, after demonstrating the ability to perform the therapy, were then free to continue cervical stimulation on their children at home. A reduction in edema was found in all children throughout treatment, ranging from two months to two years.
