- Lymphangitis is defined as an inflammation of the lymphatic channels that occurs as a result of infection at a site distal to the channel.
- In individuals with normal host defenses, species of group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (GABHS) are the most common causes of lymphangitis.
- Upon clinical examination, erythematous and irregular linear streaks extend from the primary infection site toward draining regional nodes. These streaks may be tender and warm.
