Antibiotic prophylaxis was employed in 21 patients with secondary lymphedema complicated by recurrent episodes of acute lymphangitis. Eighteen were completely free of subsequent attacks; the three others showed a marked reduction in the frequency and severity of subsequent attacks. Follow-up time averaged 30 months.
