Cutis Marmorata Telangiectatica Congenita with Pink Tetralogy of Fallot

GR Sugapradha*, Manas Shanbhag

Cutis Marmorata Telangiectatica Congenita (CMTC) is an uncommon congenital vascular defect that causes dilation of the capillaries and veins on the skin's surface. Typically presenting at birth, its clinical characteristics include reticulated, erythematous or violaceous skin with a marbled or fishnet appearance. A full-term female neonate, the first born of a non-consanguineous couple presented with dark-red to violaceous atrophic patches resembling a fishnet pattern on the right lower limb. The skin lesions did not cross the midline. Additionally, the patient also presented with tongue-tie and Pink Tetralogy of Fallot which are uncommon CMTC-related abnormalities. A frequent follow up was scheduled for the patient. Surgical correction of the tongue tie was planned. We present this case report because of its rarity and the association between CMTC, Pink Tetralogy of Fallot and tongue tie has not been reported previously.
