Golfer's vasculitis is a form of vasculitis (swelling of the blood vessels) experienced in
the lower legs caused by excessive exercise in
hotter temperatures. It is more common among older people.
It is called 'Golfer's' due to the large amount of walking done in golf, as well as it being a sport more popular among older people, resulting in greater incidence of the condition.
The rash is more common in people over 50.
