In UK General Practice the commoner used term, in my experience, is "Varicose Eczema" see NHS Direct Online Health Encyclopaedia - Eczema (varicose). Google (yes I know its a poor scientific/medical source) gives "stasis dermatitis"=60,900, "varicose dermatitis"=328, "varicose eczema"=16,800 hits. Whereas the "more respectible" PubMed gives "stasis dermatitis"=125, "varicose dermatitis"=2 and "varicose eczema"=20 David Ruben Talk 02:41, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
