Answer

Uncomplicated stasis dermatitis is usually managed in the dermatologist's office. However, a consultation with a vascular surgeon may be required, especially when an underlying surgically correctable vascular abnormality is suspected.

A consultation with a hematologist may be needed when treating a patient with stasis dermatitis due to deep venous thrombosis; cases such as these may be secondary to congenital or acquired hypercoagulable states.
