• Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a rare cutaneous vascular anomaly. Congenital persistant livedo reticularis, telangiectases, and superficial ulceration are the hallmarks of this syndrome. There is an association of CMTC with other congenital abnormalities in at least 50% of the patients. A newborn girl is described with a diagnosis of CMTC combined with multiple congenital abnormalities including imperforate anus, rectovaginal and urethrovaginal fistulas, and absent clitoris. These abnormalities have not been previously reported with CMTC. Congenital abnormalities that have been recognized with this syndrome are reviewed.
