ABSTRACT
Severe hypertension may produce symmetrical ulceration in the supramalleolar region at the anterolatcral surface. Martorell, who first described this syndrome in 1945, termed it ‘hypertensive ulcer.’ The histological finding is subendothelial hyalinosis of the arterioli which leads to stenosis of the lumen. A case is reported. Sympathectomy results in rapid healing of the ulcer.

    Endothelin-B receptors (ETBR), located mainly on endothelial cells, produce vasodilator effects by releasing either nitric oxide (NO) and/or prostacyclin (PGI2). Several reports have suggested impaired endothelial NO production in Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rats. This impaired NO production...
