OBJECTIVE: We sought to examine the role of flavonoids, particularly diosmin, as a therapeutic agent for stasis dermatitis (SD) through discussion of pathophysiology, current treatment paradigms, potential mechanisms of action, and a systematic review of evidence on clinical efficacy.

METHODS: In addition to articles on pathophysiology and standard treatment, a search of PubMed was conducted using the following query: ("Diosmin" OR "MPFF" OR "Micronized Purified Flavonoid Fraction" OR "Flavonoid") AND ("Stasis Dermatitis" OR "Venous Ulcer" OR "Lipodermatosclerosis"). Emphasis was placed on studies that were randomized controlled trials examining an oral flavonoid against a placebo or standard of care.

RESULTS: Diosmin is effective at improving stasis changes, increasing ulcer healing frequency, decreasing the time to ulcer healing, and reducing tissue edema. They also cause significant improvement in patient quality of life and reduction of venous symptoms. Diosmin has been shown to have a favorable safety profile with very few mild adverse events which did not differ significantly from placebo. Flavonoids also appear to be effective for other dermatologic conditions, including rosacea and senile purpura.

CONCLUSION: There is a growing body of evidence indicating that diosmin has therapeutic efficacy in managing stasis dermatitis. Data from studies in diseases with pathogenic similarities suggests the potential for even broader dermatologic applications.
