In recent years, cutaneous complications have been reported after implantation of medical devices as a result of their widespread use. We report a case of reticular telangiectatic erythema (RTE) after replacement of a spinal cord stimulator. To date, the pathogenesis of RTE has been poorly understood. Some reports have suggested that heat is involved, whereas others seem to contradict this observation. In our thermographic study, we found that heat can cause RTE.
