Retiform purpura most often represents pathology of medium vessels and is commonly an important sign of systemic disease. Identifying the underlying etiology is important to help prevent morbidity and mortality. We present a case in which pressure-induced necrosis (coma blister) occurred in a stellate pattern, mimicking more typical retiform purpura.
