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.
