Abstract

In vascular medicine, venous insufficiency, ocre dermatitis, stasis dermatitis, or lipodermatosclerosis (level C4 in CEAP) may lead to skin lesions involving the lower limbs. Generally, symptoms resolve with etiologic treatment using medical compression, varicosis treatment, or dermocorticoids. However, some skin lesions progress, suggesting another diagnosis, including a specific dermatosis. The diagnosis is based on clinical, biological, radiological and histological criteria. Referral to a dermatologist may be necessary to determine the appropriate etiological treatment.
