Pseudo-Kaposi sarcoma with vascular malformation (Stewart–Bluefarb syndrome) is an uncommon and important entity characterized by congenital arteriovenous malformation and skin lesions that may resemble Kaposi sarcoma. This is usually seen in the lower limb of young people. We report a case of this syndrome in a 17-year-old boy who had skin lesions on the right leg and foot.
