Five cases of varicosities of uncommon sites - suprapubic (2), abdominal and lower thoracic wall (1), gluteal region (1), and vulva (1) - are reported. The treatment given consisted of sclerotherapy and compressive bandaging. In order to obtain adequate compression in the inguinal and pubic regions it was necessary to resort to various improvizations (using wide elastic bandages and sheets of firm foamy material). Results were satisfactory.
