We report a 48-year-old woman with a 17-year history of PD who developed a peripheral sensory-motor neuropathy secondary to chronic administration (8 years) of amantadine. Discontinuation of amantadine resulted in resolution of trophic skin ulcers, paresthesias, and distal weakness. Amantadine may be hazardous to patients with severe and chronic livedo reticularis.
