Cutis Marmorata Telangiectatica Congenita

definition

Cutis Marmorata Telangiectatica Congenita (CMTC) is a rare congenital skin disorder characterized by discoloured patches of skin (livedo reticularis) caused by dilated surface blood vessels (telangiectases) which give the skin a blue or purple marbling or "fishnet" appearance. This condition is often associated with crater-like lesions (ulcers) of the skin. Other congenital abnormalities are found in at least fifty percent of affected individuals. (NORD/G. Eysenbach)
