Abstract

MAGRO, Carlos Eduardo et al. Livedo reticularis with ulcers in a patient with IgA anticardiolipin antibodies. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2005, vol.80, n.5, pp. 538-539. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962005000600013.

The authors describe a case of livedo reticularis with ulcers caused by IgA anticardiolipin antibodies. The correct identification of the etiologic factor and anticoagulation led to regression of the clinical picture and healing of ulcers.

Keywords : Antibodies, anticardiolipin; Skin diseases, vascular; Leg ulcer.
