Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a common neonatal dermatosis with an often dramatic presentation and benign course. Key clinical features including cutis marmorata, telangiectases, phlebectases, atrophic ulcerated lesions, and a tendency to improve with age, are essential in making the correct diagnosis. We describe a case of CMTC in a neonate who presented with purpuric lesions on the knees and surrounding skin.
