Most patients with CMTC show gradual but definite improvement with age. The most noticeable change occurs during the first year of life. Fading of the mottled skin pattern then slows down, but continues as the skin matures and thickens.
Since the marble-like skin pattern fades on its own, no special treatment for CMTC is needed. However, laser therapy may be used after the pattern has faded in order to destroy the abnormal blood vessels if there is a cosmetic issue.
Due to the incidence of other related conditions, careful evaluation and follow-up are important, and some infants require consultations with other pediatric specialists.
