Seven cases of phlebectasia congenita are presented. The typical cutis marmorata affected in each case one or more extremities, in extensive cases even the thorax. The mental and physical development of the children was normal. The light microscopic picture is not characteristic. The electron microscope shows an increase of pericytes around the vessels, and tight junctions are seen near the endothelial cells. In the cells and neurons, surrounding the vessels dens inclusions can be observed, the significance of which is unknown.
