Urticarial vasculitis: Clinical and laboratory findings with a particular emphasis on differential diagnosis.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2022 Apr;149(4):1137-1149

Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy; Internal Medicine, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Urticarial vasculitis (UV) is a rare cutaneous vasculitis of small vessels characterized by recurrent episodes of wheal-like lesions that tend to last more than 24 hours, healing with a residual ecchymotic postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. The histopathologic pattern of UV is that of leukocytoclastic vasculitis, consisting of fibrinoid necrosis of dermal vessels' walls and neutrophil-rich perivascular inflammatory infiltrates. Although its etiopahogenesis remains still undefined, UV is now regarded as an immune complex-driven disease with activation of the complement cascade, leading to exaggerated production of anaphylatoxins that are responsible for neutrophil recruitment and activation.

Cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis secondary to COVID-19 infection leading to extensive skin necrosis.

Clin Dermatol 2022 Mar 4. Epub 2022 Mar 4.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital of Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

A wide range of extrapulmonary manifestations in patients with COVID-19 has been reported during the ongoing pandemic, thus making the clinical spectrum of this new disease very heterogeneous. While COVID-19-associated vasculitis and vasculopathy have been described, cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis (cLcV) due to SARS-CoV-2 has rarely been reported, and if it has, with relatively mild courses. We present the case of a 93-year-old man who, after having survived classic COVID-19 infection, developed a fulminant cLcV leading to extensive skin necrosis and tissue damage that resulted in his death.

Systemic lupus erythematosus/ANCA-associated vasculitis overlap: An explanation for atypical lupus manifestation.

Lupus 2022 Apr 4;31(4):495-499. Epub 2022 Mar 4.

Faculty of Medicine, 27964Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, DC, Colombia.

The coexistence of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) as an overlapping syndrome is not common. Here, we report a case of a 33-year-old woman, with recent SLE diagnosis due to skin, kidney, articular, and immunologic compromise, in whom a chest CT scan showed bilateral nodules, consolidations, and tree-in-bud pattern; thoracoscopic lung biopsy revealed diffuse non-caseating granulomas, without other features of sarcoid, organizing pneumonia, or hypersensitivity pneumonitis with high positive p-ANCA titers. Overlap between SLE and AAV was a possible explanation for lupus granulomatous pneumonitis, and for this reason, a multidisciplinary meeting was held to evaluate complex patients with interstitial lung diseases patients.
