Livedo, livedoid manifestations and cutaneous ulcers

In patients with ulcers difficult to diagnose, the presence of some cutaneous manifestations around them can help their right recognition, so reducing the diagnostic timing with a prompt and appropriate therapeutic approach. We present two clinical cases in which the ulceration of a vasculitic nodule associated with livedo reticularis (case 1) and the association livedo racemosa-ulcers – white atrophy (case 2) allowed a right diagnosis and a successful therapy. In these two paradigmatic cases, the diagnosis was possible at bedside or in surgery and the therapy could start without cutaneous biopsy.
