Nummular eczema of statis origin. The backbone of a morphologic pattern of diverse etiology.Int J Dermatol. 1979 Mar; 18(2):129-35.IJ
A total of 113 patients with nummular eruptions of unknown origin were collected over a period of 8 years. This number was reduced to 82 patients by exclusion of known clinical entities which became unmasked during the study. All 82 patients were found to have varicose veins and/or edema of the lower extremities. Autoeczematization may be the common denominator.
