Elephantiasis nostras verrucosa describes the cutaneous changes including dermal fibrosis, hyperkeratotic, verrucous, and papillomatous lesions that occur after chronic secondary, nonfilarial lymphedema. The treatment goal is to reduce lymph stasis and avoid further complications. We report a case of elephantiasis nostras verrucosa without adequate care before effectively managed by simple treatment. Other differential diagnoses and non-invasive complete decongestive therapy ( CDT ) were also discussed.
