Livedoid vasculopathy, or livedoid vasculitis, is a hyalinizing vascular disease in which there is thrombosis and ulceration of the lower extremities.
It can produce a dermatologic finding termed atrophie blanche . Livedoid vasculopathy is a distinct condition that is not usually the result of other diseases.

In brief: Livedoid vasculopath

It is a condition of the lower extremities in which there are clots in the microscopic blood vessels.
This condition can result in ulcerations of the skin and a healing process that results in another fancy named condition called atrophie blanche. There are so many little facts about the characterization of this process that is impossible to list in the space given.
