Primary livedoid vasculopathy associated with mononeuritis multiplex

A 40-year-old woman presented with painful ulcerations on the bilateral lower extremities. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of livedoid vasculopathy (LV). She was treated initially with aspirin and pentoxifylline, and with the addition of dipyridamole she has had no recurrence of her ulcerations to date. Despite this positive response to treatment she reported numbness and paresthesias in her legs. Nerve conduction studies confirmed a diagnosis of mononeuritis multiplex. This case highlights mononeuritis multiplex as a rarely described complication of LV, and suggests that early recognition of symptoms and a multidisciplinary approach are necessary for optimal management of this condition.
