Atypical presentation (or a variant) of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome: a case report and literature review

We report the case of a 65-year-old man who we thought was an atypical presentation or a variant of the Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome. Although it is primarily a disorder of infancy and childhood, it has been reported to present in adulthood also[1,2]. Our case report highlights the need to consider the differential diagnosis of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome in patients presenting with suggestive symptoms and signs, irrespective of their age.
