Question Port wine stain

I'm a mother of a 2yr old girl who has a port wine stain covering about 90% of her right leg. She had a MRI done at Valley childrens Hospital when she was about 3 months old but said her leg was fine. Her leg get's hot and sweaty sometimes or when she is sick her leg get's very hot. Also her Right leg is somewhat bony not much tissue. The port wine stain also covers half of her private area. I'm really intersted in gettine more info on what i can do or on how to educate with her birthmark since she is starting to talk more now. I also wanted info on Kippel trenaunay? If anyones. Thanks

I would suggest that you contact Dr. Delfanian, the VBF KT Expert for advice. You might want to include a photo. also. Here is the link: http://www.birthmark.org/expert/ask_the_kt.php

The VBF Vascular Birthmarks brochure has information on KT and other types of birthmarks and related conditions, and can be found here: http://www.birthmark.org/parents_publications.php

There are also a couple of KT organizations that you can check for more information.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with, and please keep us posted on your daughter's condition.
