Although the etiology and prognosis are not known precisely, Servelle-Martorell syndrome is often a venous, but rarely an arterial vascular malformation characterized by soft tissue hypertrophy and musculoskeletal hypotrophy of the affected extremity. In general, surgery is the choice in restricted conditions for the treatment of vascular malformations; however, it is unavoidable, if complications occur. These vascular malformations are often treated with medically using compression stockings and drugs. Herein, we present a 20-year-old male patient with Servelle-Martorell syndrome treated with surgically due to venous malformation.
