General Conversation
Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a rare inherited condition defined by blemished spots of skin dued to expanded (dilated) surface blood vessels. Consequently, the skin has a purple or blue “marbled” or “fishnet” appearance (cutis marmorata). In some damaged individuals, ulcers or hereditary skin flaws (aplasia cutis) could be present. The latter association can be component of Adams-Oliver disorder. Added linked problems have been reported including pink or dark red, irregularly designed patches of skin (nevus flammeus); loss of muscle tissue (throwing away) on one side of the body (hemiatrophy); elevated fluid pressure within the eye (glaucoma); and/or undergrowth (hypotrophy) of one leg. However, numerous if not all those instances stand for types of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome or associated conditions, specifically Cowden’s condition. One of the most common association of real CMTC is with soft cells (subcutaneous fat and also muscular tissue) hypoplasia. The condition formerly referred to as macrocephaly-cutis marmorata telangiectatica hereditary (M-CMTC) is an unique hereditary illness as well as is currently called macrocephaly-capillary malformation (M-CM/MCAP) Basically all instances of CMTC take place randomly for no apparent reason (occasionally). It is assumed that CMTC stands for a form of genetic mosaicism.
