Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital condition usually presenting with port wine stains, excessive growth of soft tissue and bones, and also varicose veins which most commonly occurs in the legs, but it also may affect the arms, face, head, or internal organs .This syndrome is has a huge individual variability, given that the majority of patients do not clearly present this classic trio. We are presenting a case of Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome in a 28-year-old male patient presenting with varicosity in lateral aspect of right leg. He had many vascular abnormalities from birth which increased in time such that he had surgical interventions. On careful examination other components of the syndrome were found. The diagnosis was made with x-rays, HRCT chest and Doppler studies of the lower limb vessels. He is currently being managed conservatively with dressings, antibiotics and analgesics. Patient was followed up monthly for any abnormality.
