The Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is rare congenital disease characterized by a triad of cutaneous vascular malformations, varicose veins, and hypertrophy of bone and soft tissue. Although several cases of pregnancy in women with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome were reported as there may be increased risk of pregnancy- and/or delivery-associated complications such as varicosities, thromboembolism and hemorrhage, there is little general information regarding how to deal with pregnancy in patients with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome and their obstetric outcome. We describe the case of a woman suffering from Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome delivering a healthy child with a brief review of concerned literature.
Key Words: Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, Pregnancy, Complications
