A 37-year-old woman with well-controlled Graves' disease on carbimazole therapy presented with new-onset livedo reticularis (LR) on her legs which later regressed spontaneously. The history, examination, and investigations did not reveal any known cause for the lesion. Literature search has revealed only one report of LR in a patient of Graves' disease who had thyrotoxicosis and coexisting anticardiolipin antibodies. The patient in this report was euthyroid at the time of development of LR and did not have any antiphospholipid antibody. It is not clear whether this finding was incidental or there is a true association of LR with Graves' disease.
