Complications of Lymphography

  • P. Ruben Koehler


The following report, summarizing the more serious complications associated with lymphography, is based on a survey taken from 1966 to 1968 by the International Congress of Lymphology. Although the number of lymphograms performed over the last 7 or 8 years has increased greatly, it is believed that the relative distribution of complications is the same.
