It is an example of hemihypertrophy Here it is monoextermity hypertrophy Mycobacterial infection treat with lenazolinid or clindamycin Nodule are fatty collection similar to lipomas nothing is required Correct the anaemia Hhv8 positive is viral infection and if systemic infection is there than need to be treated

should be treated with antibiotics .ivfluids,analgesics. blood transfusion should be planned
