I thought that I knew quite a bit about leg veins. This was before I read Vein Diagnosis and Treatments by Robert and Margaret Weiss and their coauthor, Craig Feied. In reading the book, I realized that I know very little about leg veins, and I suspect that most dermatologists do not know much more. Considering that up to 40% of the population have unsightly or symptomatic venulectasia and/or telangiectasia of the legs, and that many of these individuals seek expert advice from dermatologists, it would seem that dermatologists ought to know more about vein diagnosis and treatment.
