Livedo is for reticularis. It is a vasculopathy with a blue and red-like appearance on the body, on the legs, on the legs, and the skin. Livedo begins with a spasm after a cold or emotional stimulation in the reticularist, and tissue oxygen pressure decreases. In cases of prolonged spasm, microvascular thrombosis develops.
LIVEDO RETICULARIS FORMS
Kutis marmoratus: It is a physiologically reversible condition that occurs in cold weather in infants and many adults.
Congenital Kutis marmorata telangiecthesis: Vascular lesions on localized or widespread permanent skin seen after birth.
Primary livedo reticularis: It is the form that is generally seen in benign adults with unknown cause. It rarely requires treatment.
Secondary livedo reticularis: It is defined as livedo developing due to a systemic disease and has many reasons.
SECONDARY LIVEDO RETICULARIS
Form of occlusion in the vessel due to vasculopathy:

Other causes of Livedo reticularis
Diagnosis of Livedo reticles
The diagnosis is made by skin biopsies taken from the lesions.
Treatment options suitable for the above etiological causes are applied.
