Wine stains can be part of another syndrome-Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome:. This syndrome is a complex mix of malformations because there is a capillary-venous malformation in which lymph vessels sometimes also play a role. The cause may be a mutation in the embryo. The deviations are often large and are located on limbs and torso. What can take place on a limb can be debilitating overgrowth (for example a difference in length). Bleeding can also occur. The treatment is particularly aimed at reducing complaints. Elastic stockings can be prescribed. In the case of different growth of the limbs a surgeon may be consulted.
