Cutis Marmorata Telangiectatica Congenita is a very rare birth defect involving cutaneous blood vessels. Of unknown cause, uncertain pathophysiology, unclear epidemiology. Described as a localized, or generalized marbled skin appearance (cutis marmarota), in addition to the skin, it may involve any other body organs, with, or without a wide variety of associated congenital anomalies. Kato van Lohuizen described the first case in 1922. Since then, there have been less than 300 cases reported worldwide to date. We are adding one more case, and the first reported in Libya.
