A 39-year-old Caucasian woman delivered a male baby at the 38th week of gestation. The neonate had a birth weight of 2.8 kg (5th centile) and was born of 3rd-degree consanguineous marriage. On examination, the child had generalized dilated superficial veins, and telangiectasia involving the legs, arms, and trunk (Figure 1). The lesions spared the palms and soles. Systemic examination was normal. Ultrasonogram of the head and abdomen were normal. Echocardiogram of the heart revealed a secundum-type atrial septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus.
