This case report is about a 55-year-old female who presented with wandering unilateral edema in the sequence of the left breast (for 7 days) followed by left upper limb (for 1 month), followed by the left nape of the neck (for 1 day), followed by left scalp (for 1 day), followed by left-sided face (for 3 days), followed by right-sided face (for 2 days). Edema progressed from one site to another site in the above sequence with the overlapping period of only 12–24 h and later subsided completely from its previous site.
