A new case of Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita is reported. This disease is characterized by a persistent vascular mottling of the skin generally on the limbs. In our case the lesions were present on almost the entire body even if one side was more affected, this one was also lipotropic. The face of the child was asymmetric because of the jaw's hypoplasia and nose curvature. The examination of the deep vessel did not show any abnormality but the possibility of future vascular defects as varicosities must be considered. The nosological entity of this disease is discussed.
