Introduction: The Achenbach syndrome was described in the '50s by the German physician Walter Achenbach and corresponds to an entity characterized by the appearance of ecchymosis or purpura and even bruises on the fingers and sometimes on the feet. It courses benignly and is self-limited. Methods: We present the case of a year-old woman who was diagnosed with this syndrome after performing laboratory tests, antibodies and images without finding alterations in them, with improvement after receiving analgesia and physical means. Results: The Achenbach syndrome continues to be an unknown entity, with few reports in the literature.

Skin necrosis. Report of eleven cases. Correspondencia a :. Skin necrosis must be considered as a syndrome, because it is a clinical manifestation of different diseases. An early diagnosis is very important to choose the appropriate treatment. Therefore, its causes should be suspected and confirmed quickly. We report eleven patients with skin necrosis seen at our Department, caused by different etiologies: Warfarin-induced skin necrosis, loxoscelism, diabetic microangiopathy, ecthyma gangrenosum, disseminated intravascular coagulation, necrotizing vasculitis, paraneoplastic extensive necrotizing vasculitis, livedoid vasculopathy, necrotizing fasciitis, necrosis secondary to the use of vasoactive drugs and necrosis secondary to the use of cocaine.

We also report the results of our literature review on the subject. Key words: Necrobiotic disorders; Skin diseases; Vasculitis. Puede usarse el suero anti-loxosceles que debe administrarse dentro de las primeras 4 h de ocurrida la mordedura 9. Figura 1. Figura 2. En el caso 6 se presenta una vasculitis necrotizante con biopsia compatible con VL probablemente secundaria a drogas. Figura 3. Caso 8: Vasculitis livedoide. Figura 4. Caso Necrosis por droga vasoactiva. Como terapia adicional se debe considerar el uso de vasodilatadores intravenosos.
