Dermatology Unit, Cheikh Khalifa International University Hospital, Mohammed VI University of Health Sciences, Casablanca, MAR.

Neutrophilic dermatoses (ND) refer to a group of skin diseases characterized histologically by a cutaneous infiltrate of mature polymorphonuclear cells without an identifiable cause. Previously described as autonomous, these clinically distinct entities are included in the spectrum of neutrophilic disease due to the existence of overlapping forms, as described in our observation. Erythema elevatum diutinum (EED) is a rare dermatosis characterized by reddish-violaceous to browning papulonodular and plaques and belongs to the spectrum of cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis.

Department of Nephrology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Old Rajinder Nagar, New Delhi, 110060, India.

Anticoagulation-related nephropathy (ARN) is a rare form of acute kidney injury where the use of anticoagulation causes hemorrhage in various compartments of nephron including glomerulus, renal tubules, and interstitial compartment. Also, warfarin-induced vasculitis is an extremely rare condition characterized by the appearance of purpuric lesions on the skin which on biopsy are suggestive of leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LV). We hereby report a case presenting with coexistent warfarin-induced nephropathy and cutaneous vasculitis. Read More
