Keywords:Klippel Trenaunay syndrome, port wine stain, limb hypertrophy
Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital disorder of blood and lymphatic vessels that is characterised by a combined vascular malformation of the capillaries, veins and lymphatics, congenital abnormalities, and associated limb hypertrophy. It may also involve gastrointestinal tract which can lead to life threatening bleeding. This syndrome presents since birth to early infancy or childhood with equal distribution in both genders. An adolescent female presented with right lower limb hypertrophy with port wine stain and overlying hemorrhagic vesiclessince birth. Histopathology of these hemorrhagic vesicles angiokeratoma. On the basis of history and classical clinical triad patient was diagnosed as KTS with angiokeratoma, an association rarely reported in literature.
