Introduction. Skin lesions that are present at birth or develop during the first days of life are not always easy to diagnose; a careful clinical evaluation, which may include a biopsy, is needed. The cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita is a rare cutaneous vascular malformation that is present at birth in more than 90% of the cases and that has an excellent prognosis. Clinical Observation. Newborn infant who presented with reticular skin lesions in a lower extremity and in the sacral and perineal areas. A clinical diagnosis of cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita was made after considering other entities with similar presentation. Comments. The differential diagnosis of this entity, its possible associations with congenital abnormalities, and its clinical course are discussed.
