Resumen

El linfedema facial es una patología poco frecuente y suele ser secundario al tratamiento de tumores de cabeza y cuello.

La enfermedad de Morbihan es una rara entidad que se caracteriza por la aparición de eritema y edema en el tercio medio y superior de la cara, de consistencia habitualmente dura. Su diagnóstico, valoración y tratamiento es muy complicado.

Presentamos el caso de un paciente derivado a consultas de Rehabilitación por edema facial duro y dificultad para apertura ocular. La intervención rehabilitadora junto con el drenaje linfático manual consiguió una mejoría del edema, de la dureza y de la dificultad de la visión, valorado mediante la escala visual analógica.

El linfedema facial es una entidad poco frecuente, de difícil valoración y con estudios escasos acerca de su tratamiento. El drenaje linfático manual puede ser una ayuda para mejorar el edema y en consecuencia la calidad de vida de estos pacientes.

Abstract

Facial lymphedema is an infrequent condition that is often caused by treatment for head and neck cancer.

Morbihan disease is a rare entity characterised by the development of erythema and solid oedema in the middle and upper third of the face. The evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of this condition are hugely complicated.

We report the case of a male patient who was referred to the rehabilitation department for hard facial oedema and difficulty in opening his eyes. The rehabilitation intervention and manual lymphatic drainage improved the oedema and its consistency, as well as the patient's vision, measured with a visual analogue scale.

Facial lymphedema is an unusual entity that is difficult to diagnose. Few studies have been performed of its treatment. Manual lymphatic drainage can be useful to improve the oedema and quality of life of these patients.
