Abstract

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is an inherited disorder which essentially affects the venous system. Arterial malformations accompanying venous pathologies are extremely rare. We report a 10-year-old boy of KTS patient presented with hypertension and renal atrophy who have also multiple arterial (renal, pulmonary and internal carotid) pathologic features.
