          Abstract

          Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is characterised by vascular abnormality which increases the risk of thromboembolism and haemorrhage. Physiological changes in pregnancy pose an increased risk to these complications. Being an uncommon disorder, there is limited literature about the management of women with pregnancy and Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. We report in detail two of three pregnancies in a woman with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome who had repeated episodes of haematochezia leading to anaemia, managed with Argon laser Photo-Coagulation in pregnancy and also reviewed the complications and the management of pregnant women with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome.
