Abstract The various combinations of varicose veins, limb hypertrophy, and hemangiomas necessitate diagnostic consideration of the Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome versus Weber's syndrome and cavernous hemangioma. The wide spectrum of this disease has generated diverse approaches, and treatment must be individualized. Whereas the Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is rarely a surgical disease, the gigantic proportions of our patient's anomaly warranted prompt amputation.
