In brief: End stage change

Stasis dermatitis is one of the complications, or end stage changes of varicose venous disease and/or chronic venous insufficiency.
It represents a brownish, brawny discoloration, and usual thickening, of the skin in the distal calf, in the gaiter distribution (the area just above the medial or lateral ankle). Untreated it can progress to venous stasis ulceration, which can be very hard to treat.
