Abstract


Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most important global medical challenges because of their high rates of morbidity and mortality. In this narrative review, the authors address the most important dermatologic signs that can be present in patients with cardiovascular disease. The early recognition of these underestimated entities is very important as it may lead to an early diagnosis and timely treatment, thus lessening the effects of long-term disease and possibly improving the prognosis.
