All about the skin

Livedo reticularis is a lace-like skin rash that appears due to a variety of underlying systemic conditions. It is the most common dermatologic pattern in antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (25% of patients with primary) and up to 70% of patients with SLE-associated antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Importantly, it is also seen in polyarteritis nodosa, cryoglobulinemia and with cholesterol emboli (most commonly after vascular procedures).
