Livedoid vasculitis
Military Medical Academy, Clinic of Dermatology and Venereology, Belgrade
Abstract
Twenty one patients with livedoid vasculitis are presented. Diagnosis was based on the clinical, histopathologic and direct immunofluorescent findings. The majority of patients were women (2:1), aged up to 30 years. Except for two patients with chronic venous insufficiency, the rest were with idiopathic-primary livedoid vasculitis. They alt reacted favorably to the therapy with pentoxifylline, dipyridamole and acetylsalicylic acid. It is necessary to observe the difference to the "real" vasculitis of the skin, which requires more aggressive therapy.
