General Discussion

Summary
CLOVES syndrome (CS) is a recently described rare disorder characterized by tissue overgrowth and complex vascular anomalies. CLOVES stands for congenital lipomatous (fatty) overgrowth, vascular malformations, epidermal nevi and scoliosis/skeletal/spinal anomalies.

Introduction
CLOVES syndrome was described independently by Saap and colleagues in 2007 and Alomari in 2009. A case report by the German physician Hermann Friedberg "gigantism of the right lower limb" published in 1867 is probably the first known written account of CLOVES syndrome.
