ILHAN, Ozkan et al. Congenital cutis marmorata telangiectatica and syndactyly in a preterm: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.2, pp.2-3. ISSN 0325-0075.

Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a rare, commonly benign, congenital, localized or generalized vascular anomaly of unknown aetiology. It is characterized by persistent cutis marmorata, telangiectasia and phlebectasia. Extracutaneous findings may be associated with CMTC in 18.8-70% of the cases. Diagnosis of the disorder is based on the clinical findings. The prognosis is good and improvement is observed within 2 years after birth. Herein, we report a case of a male neonate with CMTC presented on the skin of all his limbs, trunk and face, and an associated anomaly including syndactyly. We present this case because of its rarity.

Keywords : Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita; Newborn; Syndactyly.
