In the differential diagnosis of recurrent ecchymoses
and bleedings, this condition should also be considered and the patients should be examined carefully in terms of association of hematological and other diseases.
The primary clinical feature of psychogenic purpura reported in the literature is recurring ecchymoses
The peri-umbilical and flank ecchymoses
are common in rectus sheath haematoma.
The second study, a 2009 ASLMS abstract, entitled: "A Simple Solution to a Common Problem" evaluated the effectiveness and safety of the long-pulse PDL (the Vbeam) for the treatment of ecchymoses
usually develop in childhood; epistaxis, postoperative hemorrhage and gingival bleeding may be observed.
These purplish discolorations may range from tiny dots known as petechiae to larger patches known as purpuras to even larger ones known as ecchymoses
It is characterized by development of painful edematous skin lesions that progress to ecchymoses
during the following 24 h (5).
The characteristic cutaneous findings of scurvy are follicular keratotic papules and perifollicular hemorrhages, purpura, and ecchymoses
The most common adverse events observed during the double-blind, placebo-controlled portions of three clinical trials in patients with psoriasis were infections, injection-site reactions, headaches, and injection-site ecchymoses
Physical examination disclosed mild icteric sclera and multiple ecchymoses
on the extremities.
The cutaneous damage from radiation injury may manifest as ecchymoses
, petechiae, bullae, epidermal sloughing, ulceration, hair loss, hyperkeratosis, and stochastic radiation reactions with long-term carcinogenesis.
One patient presented with petechiae, one with simple ecchymoses
, and one with noninflammatory retiform purpura.
