  • Objective : This study was performed to evaluate the treatment of Acupuncture therapy including Herbal Acupuncture theraphy and Korean Bee Venom Theraphy in Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome. Methods : We treated 1 case of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome patient with mainly Korean Bee Venom Theraphy, and herbal Acupuncture, acupuncture theraphy from 27th August, 2001 to February, 2003. Results : After 3 weeks of Korean Bee Venom Theraphy, and herbal Acupuncture, acupuncture theraphy, a remarkable improvement was made for Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome. Conclusions : Korean Bee Venom Theraphy and other acupuncture therapies were effective in reducing the symptoms. We think that it need the further study and clinical trial for Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber Syndrome.

  • Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is a rare mesodermal phakomatosis characterized by cutaneous haemangiomata( usually unilateral and involving an extremity), venous varicosities and osseous and soft tissue hypertrophy, of the affected limb. Sturge-Weber syndrome, also a mesodermal pharkomatosis, is characterized by a port-wine nevus, which is present from birth and covers the face and cranium in the territory of the first division of the trigeminal nerve. Homolateral to the skin lesion, there is atrophy and calcification of the cerebral hemisphere. We experienced an unusual 26-months-old female, who had features of both Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome and Sturge-Weber syndrome. She had an extensive nevus flammeus which extended primarily over both sides of her face and the right side of the trunk and extremities, hypertrophy of the right extremity without evidence of arterovenous fistula, right glaucoma, choroidal hemangioma and leptomeningeal hemangioma, which combined Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome and Sturge-Weber syndrome. We reported this rare case with a brief review of some related literatures.

  • Background The Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is characterized by three clinical features, namely cutaneous capillary malformations, venous malformations, and soft tissue and/or bony hypertrophy of the extremities. The varied manifestations are attributed to the unpredictable clinical nature and prognosis of the syndrome. To elucidate the clinical characteristics of this disease, we reviewed a relatively large number of KTS patients who presented to our vascular anomalies center. Methods We conducted a retrospective study with 19 patients who were diagnosed with KTS and treated in our vascular anomalies clinic between 2003 and 2014, and examined their demographic characteristics, their clinical features, and the treatments administered. Results The sex distribution was balanced, with 9 (47%) males and 10 (53%) females. The mean follow-up period was 4.1 years (range, 7 months-9 years). Most of the patients received conservative treatments such as medication or physiotherapy. Compression therapies such as wearing of elastic garments/bandages were also administered, and surgical interventions were considered only when the patients became excessively symptomatic. Other treatments included laser therapy and sclerotherapy, and all the treatments were adjusted according to each case, tailored to the conditions of the individual patients. Conclusions KTS is an extremely rare, multifactorial disorder that induces widely varied symptoms. Because of this unique feature, plastic surgeons, when not careful, tend to attach a one-sided importance to typical symptoms such as limb hypertrophy or capillary malformation and thus overlook other symptoms and clinical features. KTS can be suspected in all infants who show capillary malformations or limb hypertrophy and require a multi-disciplinary approach for comprehensive management.
