Abstract
Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome is a rare congenital disorders which is characterized by the presence of multiple hemangiomata, arteriovenous fistulas and unilateral limb hypertrophy. There has been some reports that Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome was diagnosed at birth or infant, but the prenatal diagnosis was very difficult in pregnant women who have not family history. Recently, the prenatal diagnosis of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome has been occasionally reported according to improvement of prenatal ultrasound. We recently experienced two cases of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome. So we report our cases with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Klippel-trenaunay-weber syndrome, Prenatal diagnosis, Ultrasonography
