Cutis Marmorata Telangiectasia Congenita (CMTC)
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita is a birth defect involving the skin and blood vessels. It is characterized by cutis marmorata, telangiectasia, and phlebectasia (varicose vein). It is occasionally associated with skin ulceration or skin atrophy. It can occur alone or along with other birth defects, particularly those involving abnormalities of the blood vessels. The cause is thought to be multifactorial with possible genetic or environmental factors involved. Source: Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD), supported by ORDR-NCATS and NHGRI.
