We report a neonate with acute venolymphatic insufficiency after an endovascular procedure. The case of a newborn baby, who evolved with phlegmasia cerulea dolens, one type of acute venolymphatic insufficiency, after a venous endovascular procedure, is reported. Soon after the procedure, the child evolved with cyanosis that led to phlegmasia cerulea dolens following reperfusion of the limb. Lymphovenous drainage of the deep and superficial systems was performed that resulted in recovery of the limb. The drainage was performed for the periods of 20 min/h. The child required analgesic sedation to reduce movement of the limb, thereby diminishing blood flow. After 15 days, the patient no longer required analgesic sedation or lymph drainage.
