[Livedoid vasculopathy with heterozygous factor V Leiden mutation and sticky platelet syndrome].

Journal Article

A 64-year-old male patient presented with painful ulcerations and livedo racemosa of both lower limbs. He had a history of cerebral and myocardial infarctions. Dermatohistologic findings and laboratory tests of the patient's coagulation system revealed the diagnosis of livedoid vasculopathy with heterozygous factor V Leiden mutation and sticky platelet syndrome type II. Systemic treatment with acetylsalicylic acid and heparin as well as topical therapy with disinfectant and granulation-inducing agents resulted in improvement of the skin lesions.
