Abstract

Background: Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a sporadic congenital skin vascular abnormality. Significant number of patients has other congenital anomalies.

Case Report: We report a case of a preterm male newborn with cutis marmorata pattern presented on the skin of the face, right side of front of the trunk, whole back, glutei and both legs. Besides, microretrognatia and asymmetric, bad-formed, low-set ears were notable. Ophthalmologic findings showed visual impairment and pale optic nerve papilla. Monitoring of child showed mental underdevelopment and motor retardation.

Conclusion: CMTC is a rare finding with good prognosis of skin malformations, with an obligation of dermatologist and paediatrician to investigate other associated congenital anomalies.
