Ischemic fasciitis arises from continuous or intermittent pressure, which leads to subcutaneous ischemia, tissue destruction, and subsequent abnormal, proliferative wound healing. Ischemic fasciitis is generally found overlying bony prominences, including the shoulders, elbows, sacrum, and greater trochanters. It mainly involves subcutaneous tissue but can also include parts of the dermis, muscles, tendons, and even the periosteum.
