    Background: Foam sclerotherapy is well established in the treatment of varicose veins of different sizes. Methods: A literature review was performed to determine whether specific anatomical findings could be a limitation for foam sclerotherapy. Results: The following anatomical aspects are relevant as a potential limitation for foam sclerotherapy: treatment of pudendal veins, varicose veins in patients with chronic lymphedema and lymph fistulas. Conclusion: In some indications foam sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice. It is an effective and safe treatment option.
