A 63-year-old male patient, who has been suffering from venous varicosity of the left lower limb for the past 30 years came to the hospital for a checkup. Physical examinations revealed a mild swelling of the left lower limb with prominent varicosity. An ulcerated area, measuring 3 × 5 cm in size, was visible on the lateral side. A Dual Energy (DE) CT angiography (CTA) was performed to investigate the cause of the varicosity.
