What is Atrophie Blanche?

Atrophie Blanche is translated from the French language, it literally means 'white atrophy'.

It is often circular, whitish skin (hypopigmentation) with skin atrophy associated with skin hyperpigmentation. Atrophie blanche is a sign of severe and advanced venous insufficiency, also described as advanced trophic changes of the skin due to venous disease.

These skin changes can result from progressive venous insufficiency or following the healing of venous stasis ulcers.
