How might cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita be treated?

Most patients with CMTC show gradual but definite improvement with age. The most noticeable change occurs during the first year of life. After this time, fading of the mottled skin pattern slows down, but continues as the skin matures and thickens. Treatment is symptomatic and supportive. CMTC of the legs can be associated with early development of superficial venous insufficiency which may require treatment. Infants with a diagnosis of CMTC and associated abnormalities should be referred to a specialist.[1]
