What is CLOVES Syndrome? (Definition)

(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)

According to Nemours Children’s Hospital, CLOVES syndrome is a rare congenital (present at birth) disease that affects the blood and lymphatic vessels, spine, bones/joints, skin and sometimes internal organs.

CLOVES syndrome can be very difficult to diagnose correctly—not only because it is so rare, but also because its signs and symptoms vary quite a bit in the way they occur and how severe they are.

Signs and Symptoms can include:

  • fatty mass in the torso
  • vascular anomalies
  • skin abnormality
  • overgrowth or deformities in the arms/hands and/or legs/feet
  • scoliosis or other spinal problem
