Nodular Vasculitis in a Patient With Crohn's Disease on Vedolizumab.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Mar;40(3):e36-e37

Department of Dermatology, University of California, Irvine, Irvine, CA.

Erythema induratum (EI), or nodular vasculitis (NV), is a type of panniculitis that is often associated with vasculitis affecting various-sized veins, venules, and arteries in reaction to various causative factors. Historically, EI was highly linked to tuberculosis, but in 1946, Montgomery first proposed the term NV to describe cases of EI not associated with tuberculosis. Only 2 reports of NV associated with inflammatory bowel disease have been reported in the literature. Read More

Erythema induratum: case series illustrating the utility of the interferon-γ release assay in determining the association with tuberculosis.

J Cutan Med Surg 2013 Oct;17 Suppl 1:S6-S11

Background: The interferon-γ release assay (IGRA) is a novel method for detecting previous sensitization to tuberculosis (TB). Despite having several advantages over the tuberculin skin test (TST), including higher specificity and no influence from past bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) exposure, there are a limited number of reports describing its application in patients with erythema induratum (EI)/nodular vasculitis (NV), which is usually but not always related to TB.

Objectives: The aim of our case series was to evaluate the usefulness of the IGRA for determining a TB association in patients with EI/NV. Read More

Panniculitis with vasculitis.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2013 Aug;148(4):387-94

Anatomic Pathology Unit Gaetano Rummo General Hospital, Benevento, Italy -

Panniculitides encompass a great number of different entities; however, once a vasculitis has been detected histopathologically within the subcutaneous tissue, the differential diagnosis is mainly restricted to polyarteritis (panarteritis) nodosa (PAN), nodular vasculitis (NV), and Bazin's erythema induratum (EI). Patients with PAN may have the disease confined to the skin, but must be followed over a long period because many of them develop late systemic disease. The NV/EI group represents by far the most common type of lobular panniculitis with vasculitis; we prefer keeping the distinction between the two entities by underlining the equation NV positive tuberculin skin test = EI.

How to make a specific diagnosis of panniculitis on clinical grounds alone: an integrated pathway of general criteria and specific findings.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2013 Aug;148(4):325-33

Department of Clinical and Surgical Diagnostic and Pediatric Sciences. Dermatology Clinic University of Pavia and IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo Pavia, Italy -

A clinical approach to the vexing problem of diagnosis of panniculitis is traced in this paper, in order to obtain from the clinical findings, history and laboratory data of the patient useful, detailed and precise information, essential to address dermatologists to a specific clinical diagnosis of panniculitis. This approach is created in the same way as when a dermatologist faces any other dermatological disease, be it inflammatory or neoplastic. A common behavior in case of panniculitis is in fact just to take an adequate biopsy and wait for the pathologist report. Read More

Cutaneous vasculitis update: neutrophilic muscular vessel and eosinophilic, granulomatous, and lymphocytic vasculitis syndromes.

Am J Dermatopathol 2007 Feb;29(1):32-43

Division of Dermatology, Albany Medical College, MC-81, Albany, NY 12208, USA.

Most biopsies of cutaneous vasculitis will exhibit a small vessel neutrophilic vasculitis [leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV)] that is associated with immune complexes on direct immunofluorescence examination or, less commonly, antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) by indirect immunofluorescence testing. Is in uncommon for skin biopsy to reveal solely a neutrophilic arteritis signifying the presence of cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa or, if accompanied by significant lobular panniculitis, nodular vasculitis/erythema induratum. In other cases, cutaneous vascular damage (fibrinoid necrosis, muscular vessel wall disruption, or endarteritis obliterans) will be mediated by a nonneutrophilic inflammatory infiltrate. Read More
