The thyroid disease described by Robert Graves (7) and now known as Graves disease is part of a syndrome that consists of hyperthyroidism, goiter, ophthalmopathy and, occasionally, dermopathy referred to as pretibial or localized myxedema.
Consider a patient with a scaly dermatosis on the pretibial area.
Hyperthyroidism causes pretibial myxedema (thickened waxy plaques occurring in up to 10% of patients and almost always with accompanying ophthalmopathy), palmar erythema, soft thickened skin, increased sweating of the hands and feet, and thyroid acropachy (clubbing of fingers or toes) in Grave's disease.
Edema was defined as bilateral, pitting, pretibial swelling that was at least 1+.
It typically presents with enlargement of the thyroid gland (goiter), signs and symptoms of excessive thyroid function, ophthalmopathy (which is severe in 3% to 5% of cases), and less frequently pretibial myxedema and acropachy.
Wounds at risk consist of avulsed skin flaps, wounds located over the pretibial surface and Achilles tendon; and flaps that are contused, ecchymotic, or blanched.
