A 51-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic with numbness and anesthesia in the left upper extremity. There was widespread peripheral edema above and below the left elbow. Symptoms of the patient were associated with axillary lymphatic nodular dissection during previous the mastectomy operation. The patient was successfully treated using the supermicrosurgery technique via lymphaticovenular anastomosis.
