Abstract

Livedo reticularis is a vascular abnormality of the skin resulting in an erythematous reticular rash. The combination of livedo reticularis and stroke-like episodes in adults is known as Sneddon syndrome [Sneddon, IB (1965). Br J Dermatol 77:180-188]. A similar combination of stroke-like episodes and livedo reticularis has been reported to occur in children [Baxter Pet al. (1993). Der Med Child Neuro 35:917-926]. We present here a 7- year-old male with congenital livedo reticularis, obesity, developmental delay, stroke-like episode, hypertension and cystic kidneys. We summarize our patient's findings and family history, and compare his disorder to other possibly related conditions.
