Acroangiodermatitis.

Dermatol Online J. 2007

Heller M, Karen JK, Fangman W.
New York University Department of Dermatology, USA.

A 26-year-old man with a history of chronic primary lymphedema of the
left lower extremity presented with elephantiasis, confluent,
violaceous, mascerated plaques, and ulcers on the dorsal aspects of
the toes of the left foot. Histopathologic examination showed a
proliferation of small blood vessels associated with extravasated
erythrocytes and hemosiderin deposits consistent with the diagnosis
of acroangiodermatitis. Treatment of the focal ulcers includes
compression therapy, local wound care, and surgical elimination of
the shunt if there is an associated arteriovenous malformation.
