Macrocephaly, cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita syndrome (M-CMTC) is a very rare, complex disorder of the skin and other organ systems that is probably the result of unpredictable, (sporadic, random) mutations. This syndrome is characterized by a disproportionately large head, marbled-appearing skin with pink-to-red lacy patches (vascular malformations) on the skin of the trunk. Individuals with M-CMTC appear to be susceptible to neurological deficits as well.
