DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2021.849 Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital disease characterized by vascular malformations and tissue hypertrophy. The recommended treatment to manage the symptoms of this syndrome is based on conservative methods including complex decongestive therapy. In this article, we report a pediatric case of KTS in whom short-term CDT was applied. A decrease in pain, fatigue, lymphedema, and an improvement in the functional mobility and lower extremity endurance were achieved.
