PMID: 32239837.


Martorell hypertensive ischemic ulcer is often an unrecognized cause of chronic leg ulcer and may result in a delayed management. We describe a typical case report with clinical key features for diagnosis and therapeutic management. Pathophysiology and main differential diagnosis are discussed. Skin biopsy can be used to rule out differential diagnosis. Management should be focused on pain control, evaluation and treatment of cardiovascular risks before performing a skin graft.
