Macrocephaly with cutis marmorata, haemangioma and syndactyly--a distinctive overgrowth syndrome.

Author information

Regional Genetic Service, St Marys Hospital, Manchester, UK.


We describe nine children with a similar pattern of features including macrocephaly and cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita. All were large at birth and had a distinctive capillary haemangioma involving the philtrum and upper lip. The seven who survived all developed hydrocephalus and had developmental delay. Six developed body asymmetry and three had internal arteriovenous malformations. Syndactyly of the second and third toes and/or the third and fourth fingers or toes was commonly seen. All of the cases were sporadic. This condition is easily recognizable and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with overgrowth and macrocephaly.
