Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome: Case series from a university hospital of Nepal.

"Introduction Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome is a rare congenital malformation of capillary and venous malformations as well as soft tissue/bone overgrowth with or without lymphatic malformation. " In addition, the patient can experience thromboembolic pathologies, recurrent bouts of infection, stasis eczema, leg length discrepancy, and intolerable pain related to intraosseous involvement. Methods Here, we present a case study of seven patients aged 10-45 who presented to our center with clinical signs suggestive of KTS. Six patients were affected by unilateral lower limb involvement, while only one had involvement in bilateral lower limb involvement. All of them had typical cutaneous vascular stains and underlying venous malformation, but one patient had complications with multiple ulcer formation. The follow-up results of all the patients' symptoms showed significant improvement of symptoms. Patients with KTS can have a variety of presentations. ".
