Proteus syndrome: a case report.
J Pak Assoc Derma Jan ;17(4):270-3.
Proteus syndrome (PS) is a congenital hamartomatous dysplasia. This sporadic disorder involves the skeletal system, soft tissues, skin and vascular system. It is a rare disease and frequently over or under diagnosed. The clinical picture mimics Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome. Only the presence of full blown syndrome should prompt the diagnosis. We present a typical case of PS who was mishandled by general practitioners and physicians and was treated as a case of acromegaly.
