ⓘ Varicose eczema

Stasis dermatitis refers to the skin changes that occur in the leg as a result of "stasis" or blood pooling from insufficient venous return, the alternative name of varicose eczema comes from a common cause of this being varicose veins.

Inadequate venous return leads to increased pressure in the capillaries with the result that both fluid and cells may "leak" from capillaries. As a result, the red blood cells breaking down, with iron containing hemosiderin can lead to pathology of this entity.
