Klippel-Trénaunay-Weber syndrome (KTWS) is characterized by a triad of cutaneous hemangiomas, hemihypertrophy, and vascular abnormalities. This triad of anomalies was first described by Klippel and Trénaunay in 1900 Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) presents with a classic triad of bone and soft-tissue hypertrophy, cutaneous capillary hemangioma (port wine stain), and congenital varicose veins. There is no sex predilection, with less than 1,000 reported cases (likely underreported). 1 KTS usually involves a single limb, most often the lower limb, seen in 75% of patients
Abstract. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is characterized by port-wine hemangiomas, deep venous system abnormalities, superficial varicosities, and bony and soft-tissue hypertrophy. When associated with an arteriovenous fistula, it has been termed Klippel-Trenaunay-Parkes-Weber syndrome. It is imperative that both the radiologist and surgeon be. The role of radiology in the planning management of Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS) The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 42, No. 2 Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy & Percutaneous Techniques, Vol. 19, No. We examined 11 patients, clinically and radiographically diagnosed as having the Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) by MRI. There were four females and seven males, aged 3-51 years (mean 21 years). Two had clear asymmetry of the cerebral and cerebellar hemispheres. The thickness of the grey matter was Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome or KTS is a complex vascular syndrome associated with overgrowth occurring as a result of somatic mutations in the PIK3CA gene. Patients are diagnosed on the basis of physical findings, sometimes with supportive imaging, of commonly a segmental anomaly with a cutaneous port-wine stain, lymphatic and venous malformations and overgrowth
Ordinarily klippel-trenaunay syndrome is termed as 'birth mark'. Multiple abnormalities which include blood vessels, bone and soft tissues causes this rare congenital syndrome. The development of the marks occurs due to inflammation of the vein near the surface of the skin Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (also known as nevus vasculosus steohypertrophicus) is a sporadic nonhereditary rare mesodermal abnormality that usually affects a single lower limb. It is characterized by a triad of : 1) haemangioma generally of the nevus flammeus type, 2) varicose veins, and 3) hypertrophy of the soft tissue and bones of the affected limb
Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare disorder that consists of a triad of capillary vascular malformation, venous malformations and/or varicose veins, and soft tissue and/or bony hypertrophy .

The exact cause of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome (KTWS) remains to be elucidated, although several theories exist. Bliznak and Staple suggested intrauterine damage to the sympathetic ganglia or intermediolateral tract leading to dilated microscopic arteriovenous anastomoses as the cause.  Servelle believes that deep vein abnormalities, with resultant obstruction of venous flow, lead to.
Background: Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is characterized by the triad of capillary malformation, venous malformation with or without lymphatic malformation, and limb overgrowth. Patients with KTS have lower scores in general in mental health, physical function, and quality of life than the general population
Because Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome may affect many systems in the body, your health care team may include specialists in vascular medicine and surgery, skin diseases (dermatology), interventional radiology, orthopedic surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and other areas as needed
, formerly referred to as Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare disorder that is present at birth (congenital) and is characterized by a triad of cutaneous capillary malformation (port-wine stain), lymphatic anomalies, and abnormal veins in association with variable overgrowth of soft tissue and bone. KTS occurs most frequently in the lower limb and less commonly.

Background. Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome with vascular involvement. Given the rarity of the syndrome, its management in pregnancy is based on the outcome of a few case reports and expert opinion. Case Summary. The management of a complicated case with its antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum concerns has been addressed in this review.<i> Conclusions.</i.
