Abstract: 

Introduction: Sneddon syndrome is a combinaison of skin lesions (livedoreticularis) and acute cerebrovascular accident. The syndrome involves many organs such as kidney, heart, skin and brain. Some patients have a good prognosis when taking Aspirin and Diprydamol. In this article a case of this syndrome is reported.
Case: The patient is a 40 years old woman with a history of 8 times intrauterine fetal deaths. She was now admitted to the neurology ward with signs of weakness in left side of the body (hemiparesis), dysarthria, 7th central nerve paralysis, and skin lesions (livedoreticularis).
All laboratory data such as serology and microbiology were normal. After skin biopsy from the lower limbs and rule out possible secondary etiologies, this patient was recognized with Sneddon syndrome and recieved anti- platelet treatment.
Conclusion: Despite the fact that this syndrome is rare, it seems considering the probability of appearing this syndrome, especially in young patients who are suffering from acute cerebrovascular signs and skin lesions in the same time, early treatment can prevent the desease from developing to other organs.
