The article presents two cases of a 27-year-old and a 33-year-old who were diagnosed of recurrent ulcers on the feet and legs. These patients had identical clinical picture of indolent leg ulceration starting at the age of 16 years and it was found out that the disease was associated with type IV hyperlipidemia. In conclusion, blood lipid abnormalities and changes in the physical properties of their red blood cells could be the cause of the chronic leg ulcers.
