Introduction Vascular diseases are often suspected of being the cause of acute or chronic leg pain. However, the question also arises as to whether dermatological conditions may be associated with leg pain. Methods Dermatological conditions are systematically presented with respect to concomitant or causal painfulness. Results Pain is prominent with infections of the skin, while allergic or toxic contact dermatitis, pruritic diseases, and cutaneous autoimmune diseases are associated with pain. Conclusions An underlying dermatological condition should be considered whenever there is leg pain of unknown origin. Pain may occur as a prodromal symptom of herpes zoster (shingles).
