The high blood pressure was found in Family history, hospitalized in neurology for recurrent ischemic stroke so the etiological assessment was negative, opinion was sought for lesions of livedo at the level of the members back to 2 years without the concept of miscarriage or Raynaud’s phenomenon, neither photosensitivity nor a dry syndrome. Dermatologic examination showed dusky erythematous to violaceous, irregular, broken circular segments, resulting in a seemingly larger pattern, located on limbs, trunk, and buttocks, exaggerated by the cold and persistent on warming. A report looking for the antiphospholipid antibodies syndrome was positive and the skin biopsy was in favor of a Sneddon syndrome.
