We review the most characteristic clinical and histopathologic findings of the cutaneous manifestations of the occlusive nonvasculitic vasculopathic disorders. Clinically, most of these conditions are characterized by retiform purpura. Histopathologic findings consist of occlusion of the vessel lumina with no vasculitis. Different disorders may produce nonvasculitic occlusive vasculopathy in cutaneous blood and lymphatic vessels, including embolization due to cholesterol and oxalate emboli, cutaneous intravascular metastasis from visceral malignancies, atrial myxomas, intravascular angiosarcoma, intralymphatic histiocytosis, intravascular lymphomas, endocarditis, crystal globulin vasculopathy, hypereosinophilic syndrome, and foreign material...

PURPOSE: To report the occurrence of a branch retinal artery occlusion with paracentral acute middle maculopathy in an otherwise healthy young man with a history of livedo reticularis (LR). METHODS: Retrospective case report. PATIENTS: A 21-year-old man with a history of LR being treated with pentoxifylline developed an acute branch retinal artery occlusion with initial best-corrected visual acuity at presentation of 20/80. RESULTS: A thorough diagnostic work up was negative for potential causes of branch retinal artery occlusion or LR...

Divry van Bogaert Syndrome (DBS) is a familial juvenile-onset disorder characterized by livedo racemosa, white matter disease, dementia, epilepsy and angiographic finding of "cerebral angiomatosis". A similar syndrome including livedo racemosa and cerebrovascular disease, often associated with anticardiolipin antibodies, has been described as Sneddon Syndrome (SS) highlighting the question whether these two conditions have to be considered different entities or indeed different features of a unique syndrome...

A 51-year-old man gave a 2-year history of worsening mobility, cognitive decline and headaches. He had a history of thromboembolic stroke, recurrent transient ischaemic attacks and a spontaneous intraventricular haemorrhage. On examination, he had livedo reticularis and perniosis and a systolic murmur. Catheter cerebral angiography showed peripheral small-vessel and medium-vessel vasculopathy resulting in pruning of the distal cortical vessels and tortuous irregular distal collaterals. Skin biopsy showed subtle vasculopathy with ectasia of capillaries and postcapillary venules but no frank vasculitis or arterial thrombosis...

Sneddon's syndrome is a rare vascular disease affecting mainly skin and brain arterioles leading to their occlusion. The two main features of this syndrome are livedo racemosa and ischemic stroke. Here, we describe the case of a 37-year-old woman with a past medical history of Moskowitz's syndrome and migraine, and a 2-year history of livedo racemosa and Raynaud's phenomenon. She presented with acute aphasia related to cortical ischemic stroke. Extensive diagnostic workup allowed to diagnose a Sneddon's syndrome...

Sneddon syndrome(SS) is a rare clinical syndrome characterized by ischemic cerebrovascular disease and livedo reticularis, which involves the heart, kidney, fundus and other organs. We reported a case of a 45-year old male patient with recurrent ischemic cerebrovascular accidents as the first manifestation, accompanied by significant declines in cognitive function and livedo reticularis in trunk and limbs. The final diagnosis was SS. This article summarized the possible etiology, clinical characteristics, diagnosis and treatment for SS...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous decompression sickness (DCS) is often considered to be a mild entity that may be explained by either vascular occlusion of skin vessels by bubbles entering the arterial circulation through a right-to-left shunt or bubble formation due to saturated subcutaneous tissue during decompression. We propose an alternative hypothesis. METHODS: The case is presented of a 30-year-old female diver with skin DCS on three separate occasions following relatively low decompression stress dives...

We present the case of a 49-year-old woman diagnosed with Sneddon's syndrome and previous endovascular embolization for cerebral and left renal artery aneurysms. The aneurysm was asymptomatic and incidentally detected as coin opacity at a preoperative X-ray performed for breast surgery. The 13-mm saccular left internal thoracic artery aneurysm engaged through a percutaneous left brachial artery access was successfully excluded with a stent graft. A 6-month follow-up computed tomography angiography confirmed the exclusion of the aneurysm, the patency of the internal thoracic artery, and the absence of endoleak or edge stenoses...

We review the evidence for a link between consistent among-individual variation in behaviour (animal personality) and the ability to win contests over limited resources. Explorative and bold behaviours often covary with contest behaviour and outcome, although there is evidence that the structure of these 'behavioural syndromes' can change across situations. Aggression itself is typically repeatable, but also subject to high within-individual variation as a consequence of plastic responses to previous fight outcomes and opponent traits...

Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a uniformly fatal tumour caused predominantly by exposure to asbestos. It is not known why some exposed individuals get mesothelioma and others do not. There is some epidemiological evidence of host susceptibility. BAP1 gene somatic mutations and allelic loss are common in mesothelioma and recently a BAP1 cancer syndrome was described in which affected individuals and families had an increased risk of cancer of multiple types, including MM. To determine if BAP1 mutations could underlie any of the sporadic mesothelioma cases in our cohort of patients, we performed targeted deep sequencing of the BAP1 exome on the IonTorrent Proton sequencer in 115 unrelated MM cases...

OBJECTIVE: Sneddon syndrome (SS) is characterized by the association of a livedo reticularis with stroke. Clinicoradiological features of its neurological manifestations, its prognosis, and the frequency of associated cardiac valvulopathy remain poorly known, particularly in the absence of antiphospholipid antibodies (APL). The objectives were to assess the clinicoradiological pattern of SS without APL (SSAPL- ) and its midterm prognosis. METHODS: Clinical data, transthoracic echocardiograms, and brain imaging of 53 consecutive patients (83% women) with SSAPL- , followed up at our institution between 1991 and 2011, were reviewed...

Sneddon's syndrome (SS) is a rare non-inflammatory thrombotic vasculopathy characterized by the combination of cerebrovascular disease with livedo racemosa(LR). The Orpha number for SS is ORPHA820. It has been estimated that the incidence of SS is 4 per 1 million per annum in general population and generally occurs in women between the ages of 20 and 42 years. LR may precede the onset of stroke by years and the trunk and/or buttocks are involved in nearly all patients. The cerebrovascular manifestations are mostly secondary to ischemia (transient ischemic attacks and cerebral infarct)...

CLINICAL CASE: We report a case of a 26 year old woman with Raynaud's phenomenon and livedo reticularis 2 years onset, who presented with visual field defects accompanied by hypertension, hematuria, and headache. The examination revealed multiple retinal and optic nerve head infarcts in both eyes. DISCUSSION: Sneddon's syndrome is a vasculitis that produces livedo reticularis, neurological symptoms, and less frequently myocardial, renal and retinal infarction. After reviewing the literature, this is the first case described of Sneddon's syndrome presenting with optic nerve infarction...

Sneddon syndrome--a rare cause of aortic and mitral valve stenosis. Sneddon syndrome is a rare disorder that leads to repeated occurrence of cerebrovascular disease and skin manifestation, defined as livedo racemosa generalisata. The authors report the occurrence of multiple valve degenerations in a 49-year-old patient with Sneddon syndrome, which seemed to have been asymptomatic through a long period of time and was diagnosed as it needed a complex surgical intervention.

Sneddon syndrome is defined by the association of livedo racemosa and recurrent cerebrovascular ischemic lesions. The annual incidence is 4/1,000,000. This syndrome particularly affects young women, some reports suggesting a family predisposition. It is a chronic, progressive, arterio-occlusive disease of unknown etiology that involves small and medium-sized arteries. It is usually associated with antiphospholipid antibodies. We report the case of a female patient with Sneddon syndrome with significant family history, personal history of stroke, epilepsy, migraine, cardiovascular involvement, three miscarriages, cognitive decline, noncompliant to therapy, in the absence of antiphospholipid antibodies...
