Livedoid Vasculopathy—Report of One Case Treated with Warfarin—
Yi-Ming Huang Chun-Hong Hu Woan-Ruoh Lee
Dermatol Sinica 20: 51-56, 2002

Livedoid vasculopathy is a chronic disorder characterized clinically by recurrent painful ulcers of the feet, ankles and legs that heal with residual white atrophic scars and histologically by intravascular deposition of fibrin. We report a 42-year-old man who has had recurrent multiple painful, deep-crusted ulcerations with erythematous bases over bilateral lower legs for one and a half years. Therapeutic response to dipyridamole, pentoxyphylline and aspirin was very poor. Oral anticoagulant, warfarin was administered at 3.75mg/day and maintained for 2 months. New lesions have not recurred and existing lesions have improved after 2 months.
