Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 33-year-old female, presented with fever, lower limb ulcers and severe backache. The present history evolved four weeks after the complaints of claudication of buttocks, thighs and calves. Lower limb arterial pulsations were not detectable. Colour Doppler and Computed Tomograph (CT) Angiography revealed blockage of abdominal aorta below the origin of renal arteries. The cause of the fever, lower limb ulcers and cruciate backache could be related to this occlusion. This obstruction which was first described by Leriche and is not known to endow with such perplex symptomatology and that too, to a dermatologist with acute febrile illness, severe backache and lower limb ulcers.
