Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita (CMTC) is a benign angiomatous condition usually seen at birth as dilation of superficial capillaries and veins. Its characteristic feature is red or purple reticulated anastomosed macules having localized or generalized asymmetrical appearance. These lesions may also be associated with ulceration or atrophy. It is a rare disease with unknown etiology. However, prognosis is generally good.

Here, we are presenting a case of male term baby born at 40 week gestation with APGAR score 5/1 and 9/5 and no associated abnormalities. The management of such a case requires involvement of a pediatrician, dermatologist and psychologists.
