Klippel–Trénaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by malformation of lymph and blood vessels as well as growth disturbance of soft tissue and bone. The clinical picture is variable and associated with an increased risk of thromboembolic events mediated by intravascular coagulopathy in venous malformations. Here, we report on a male patient with KTS suffering from recurrent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and life-threatening bleeding due to consumptive coagulopathy. Furthermore, we describe the successful long-term anticoagulant management with rivaroxaban.
