Leg ulcers, cutaneous complications of chronic hemolytic anemias, are seen as well defined recurrent chronic skin lesions healing with scarring more commonly in young adults occuring on or over each of the malleoli. Although the ethiopathogenesis has not been well established, possible relative hypoxia from chronic anemia, changes in hemodinamics caused by orthostatic pressure and bony malleolar prominences
exposed to constant trauma are the accused factors.
In this report, we present a 37 year old man who had ß-(beta) Thalassemia intermedia with recurrent chronic leg ulcers for 15 years.
It is very important to evaluate hematological studies beside the physical examination in leg ulcers of which possibility must be followed for years in patients with chronic anemia.
