Other Names: KTW syndrome
Nature: The features of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome are large cutaneous hemangiomata with hypertrophy of the related bones and soft tissues. The disorder resembles, clinically and in its lack of definite genetic basis, Sturge-Weber syndrome and indeed the two have been associated in some cases. Suggestions of a genetic 'cause' are meager.
Problem Type: G: Very specific problems
