    Treatment of nodular vasculitis with colchicine.
    Australas J Dermatol 2016 Jun 1. Epub 2016 Jun 1.
    Department of Dermatology, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
    Nodular vasculitis (NV) refers to a chronic relapsing lobular panniculitis that is thought to be a hypersensitivity reaction to antigenic triggers. While it is commonly associated with tuberculosis, in many cases no underlying cause is found and the condition is difficult to manage. Here, we report three patients with refractory idiopathic NV effectively treated with colchicine, leading to a significant improvement or complete resolution of their symptoms. Read More

Three weeks later erythematous painless deep nodules appeared on the left popliteal fossa and on the left thigh. 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

    Erythema nodosum and erythema induratum (nodular vasculitis): diagnosis and management.
    Dermatol Ther 2010 Jul-Aug;23(4):320-7
    Department of Pathology, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.
    Erythema nodosum is the most common type of panniculitis; it may be due to a variety of underlying infectious or otherwise antigenic stimuli. The pathogenesis remains to be elucidated, but both neutrophilic inflammation and granulomatous inflammation are implicated. Beyond treating underlying triggers, therapeutic options consist mainly of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, symptomatic care, potassium iodide, and colchicine. Read More

    Gastroenterology and Hepatology Department, Centro Hospitalar Vila Nova de Gaia Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.
    Erythema induratum, or nodular vasculitis, was initially described as a type of cutaneous tuberculosis. Currently, it is considered a multifactorial syndrome of lobular panniculitis of unknown cause. An association between erythema induratum and hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been suggested in previous reports. Read More

    Erythema induratum of bazin.
    Dermatol Clin 2008 Oct;26(4):439-45, v
    Department of Dermatology, Hospital Clínico and Barcelona University School of Medicine, Calle Villarroel 170, 08036 Barcelona, Spain.
    Erythema induratum of Bazin is a chronic, nodular eruption that usually occurs on the lower legs of young women. It has been regarded as a manifestation of tuberculin hypersensitivity, a type of tuberculid occurring on the legs, whereas nodular vasculitis represents the nontuberculous counterpart. The number of reports of erythema induratum of Bazin is decreasing in most developed countries in accordance with the decreased incidence of tuberculosis. 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

    Superficial thrombophlebitic tuberculide.
    Int J Dermatol 2006 Nov;45(11):1337-40
    Department of Dermatology, University of Limpopo, South Africa.
    Background: Tuberculides are the result of immunologic reactions to hematogenously spread antigenic components of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. There are three recognized tuberculides--papulonecrotic tuberculide, erythema induratum of Bazin, and lichen scrofulosorum. In 1997, in Japan, Hara and coworkers reported five patients with what they called "nodular granulomatous phlebitis," which they proposed was a fourth type of tuberculide. Read More

    Panniculitis: recent developments and observations.
    Semin Cutan Med Surg 1996 Dec;15(4):278-99
    Department of Pathology, North Carolina Baptist Hospital, Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, USA.
    Dermatopathologists rarely greet a biopsy of panniculitis with total confidence that a specific, definitive diagnosis will be rendered. As with many other areas in dermatopathology, our understanding of the pathogenesis of many forms of panniculitis is incomplete. This article examines a subset of panniculitis primarily from a pathogenetic standpoint, with the intention of providing a differential diagnosis for those cases in which ischemic changes are seen in the subcutis.

    Erythema induratum of Bazin.
    Int J Dermatol 1996 Nov;35(11):802-8
    Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Korea.
    Background: There has been a long controversy about the tuberculous cause of erythema induratum, a chronic form of nodular vasculitis.

    Method: We investigated clinical, histopathologic, and immunohistochemical features of patients with erythema induratum who showed positive tuberculin hypersensitivity reactions or had associated active tuberculosis.

    Results: The ages of the 32 patients (M 7: W 25) ranged from 13 to 66 years (mean 36. Read More

    Erythema induratum of Bazin. Evidence of T-lymphocyte hyperresponsiveness to purified protein derivative of tuberculin: report of two cases and treatment.
    Arch Dermatol 1993 Apr;129(4):469-73
    Department of Dermatology, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, Germany.
    Background And Design: Erythema induratum of Bazin, a chronic form of nodular vasculitis, may be associated with chronic infections by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, the true origin of the disease is a subject of speculation and remains elusive. Two female patients (58 years old and 33 years old) with a minimum 10-year history of chronic tender ulcerating nodules on the lower aspects of the legs were studied both clinically and in the response of their peripheral T cells to purified protein derivative of tuberculin.

    [Immunohistochemistry of nodular vasculitis. A possible role of delayed cellular hypersensitivity].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 1992 ;119(12):958-63
    Clinique Dermatologique des Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg.
    The physiopathogenesis of nodular vasculitis is still unknown: there is probably an initial Arthus' phenomenon responsible for the lesions of the deep vessels, but the frequent recurrences and the long time duration of the hypodermic nodules are still not understood. Dendritic protein S100 positive cells had previously been observed within hypodermal granulomas. The purpose of this study was to confirm these observations in a large group of nodular vasculitis, and to compare the expression of S100 protein in other vascular diseases and in pure panniculitis.

    [Bazin's erythema induratum: obsolete concept and terminology].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 1990 ;117(12):937-43
    Clinique Dermatologique, Faculté de médecine, Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France.
    In 1855 Ernest Bazin, who had noted hard, deep and violaceous nodules on the legs of young women, created his famous "erythema induratum" classified among the "erythematous benign scrofulides". Some forty years later, identical lesions were observed associated with tuberculosis; Colcott-Fox called them "érythème induré de Bazin", and ever since that time erythema induratum has been presumed to be of tuberculous origin. In 1900, Darier spoke of "tuberculids" for erythema induratum, and Bazin's "scrofulides" were abusively translated as "tuberculids". Read More

    S-100-protein-positive dendritic cells in nodular vasculitis.
    Dermatologica 1986 ;172(3):139-43
    We investigated the distribution of S-100-protein-positive dendritic cells in 20 cases of nodular vasculitis (erythema induratum Bazin). The cells were identified by immunohistochemical demonstration in paraffin sections. S-100-protein-positive dendritic cells were present in all cases and comprised up to 11% of the infiltrating cells in lymphohistiocytic areas (mean 3. Read More

    Weber-Christian disease. Analysis of 15 cases and review of the literature.
    Medicine (Baltimore) 1985 May;64(3):181-91
    We report 15 patients encountered over 13 years who presented with inflammation of subcutaneous fat and were given clinical and pathologic diagnoses of Weber--Christian disease (WCD). Prominent clinical features included female predominance, lower extremity nodules, fevers, arthritis/arthralgias, and myalgias. Notable laboratory features were elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, anemia, leukopenia, and hypocomplementemia, frequently with circulating 7S IgM or immune complexes at times of active symptoms.

    Phlebologie 1981 Oct-Dec;34(4):543-50
    Nonlymphangiophlebitic hypodermatitis includes acute, subacute and chronic afflictions. The first are primarily expressed by erythema nodosum, which can be triggered by many factors and is characterized microscopically by the presence in the interlobular septa of lymphocytes, histiocytes and polynuclears. Subacute and chronic hypodermic inflammation have different microscopic substrata. Read More

    Acute panniculitis: a clinical and histopathologic study of 34 cases.
    Arch Dermatol 1977 Jul;113(7):909-17
    Thirty-four patients had histopathologic findings of acute panniculitis. 15 had clinical findings of erythema nodosum; 6 had infectious lesions; and 5 had Weber-Christian-like conditions with recurrent febrile suppurative or nonsuppurative nodular eruptions; 3 of the 5 had amylase and lipase enzyme abnormalities with or without pancreatic disease. Five additional patients had acute panniculitis that would be termed "deythema induratum" or "nodular vasculitis" by most clinicians, and the subsequent pathologic findings and courses were consistent with this view.
