Livedoid vasculopathy

Livedoid vasculopathy is also known as ‘livedo vasculitis', ‘livedoid vasculitis' and ‘livedo reticularis with summer/winter ulceration'.

Livedoid vasculopathy is a rare, chronic vascular disorder characterised by persistent painful ulceration of the lower extremities. The condition occurs chiefly but not exclusively on the lower leg or foot and occurs most commonly in middle-aged women. There is often an increased incidence during the winter and summer months.

Livedoid vasculopathy affects the lower legs, ankles, and/or upper surfaces of the feet. Characteristics include:

- Painful red or purple marks and spots that progress to small, tender, irregular ulcers (30% of cases)

- Painless atrophie blanche scars
