The occurrence of arterial leg ulcers due to atherosclerosis is common among old individuals. However, the development of leg ulcers due to atherosclerosis in a young female unassociated with risk factors like hyperlipidemia is rare. Herein, we present a case of leg ulcers consequent to atherosclerosis in a young female having normal lipid profile and unassociated with other risk factors. Characteristic morphology and site of the ulcers along with supportive investigations such as color Doppler study and histopathology of ulcer corroborated in establishing the diagnosis.
