Sneddon's syndrome is a rarely seen disorder and it is characterized by livedo reticularis (LR) and neurologic findings. Some systematic findings may also be seen with neurologic and cutaneous findings. In this case, we aimed to present a 28-year-old female patient with diffuse LR, cardiac valve disease and migraine-type headache who had a right hemiplegic attack.
