Summary: Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is the most frequent systemic venous angiodysplasia. It is characterized by cutaneous capillary malformations – naevus flammeus, excessive growth of soft and bone tissue, venous and lymphatic malformations.

Investigative Methods Include: clinical examinations, venography as the evidence of dysplastic changes of superficial and / or deep venous system, the Moyne obstruction and venous insufficiency perforator. Treatment is conservative, related to that of chronic venous disease. The surgery is aimed at removing the varices and insufficient perforators.
