What is Sneddon syndrome?

Sneddon's syndrome is a systemic (whole body) variant of idiopathic (cause unknown) livedo reticularis, a condition that causes dilation of capillary blood vessels and stagnation of blood within the blood vessels. It most commonly affects blood vessels in the brain, eye and heart.
