Diffuse Dermal Angiomatosis Manifestation of Underlying Severe Peripheral Vascular Disease
KeywordsDiffuse dermal angiomatosis, peripheral vascular disease, revascularization
Diffuse dermal angiomatosis is a benign vascular disorder suspected in patients with cardiovascular risk factors. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with a non-healing hip wound but no significant cardiovascular risk factors, who was found to have diffuse dermal angiomatosis on biopsy leading to the diagnosis of severe peripheral vascular disease. Her wound healed after revascularization.
