Alcohol-Associated Immunoglobulin A Vasculitis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Dermatopathology (Basel) 2019 Oct-Dec;6(4):288-293. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Dermatology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Immunoglobulin A (IgA)-mediated leukocytoclastic vasculitis is a cutaneous small-vessel vasculitis characterized by skin findings of palpable purpura. It may occur secondary to infections, neoplasms, drugs, and systemic conditions, although it is most commonly idiopathic. A known, but rare, trigger for IgA vasculitis is alcohol consumption.

Influenza-Induced Acute Macular Neuroretinopathy With Cerebral Involvement in a Ten-Year-Old Boy.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2020 05;51(5):293-297

A 10-year-old male presented with 1-week duration of painless bilateral central vision loss after having been diagnosed with influenza A. Optical coherence tomography revealed superficial retinal nerve fiber layer infarcts, hyperreflectivity of the inner nuclear layer consistent with paracentral acute middle maculopathy (PAMM), and outer nuclear layer hyperreflectivity and disruption of the ellipsoid zone suggesting acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN). Brain MRI revealed enhancement of the right basal ganglia consistent with focal encephalitis. Read More

Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis: An Early Skin Biopsy Makes a Difference.

Cureus 2020 May 1;12(5):e7912. Epub 2020 May 1.

Internal Medicine, University of Connecticut, Farmington, USA.

Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is an uncommon condition with a broad differential diagnosis. Although the clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory workup are pivotal when formulating a differential diagnosis of LCV, a skin biopsy is required in most cases to elucidate the cause. The diagnostic yield of a skin biopsy increases within the first 24 to 48 hours of the lesion onset indicating the importance of obtaining a prompt skin sample. Read More

Cesk Patol 2020 ;56(2):83-88

Secondary vasculitides usually accompany various common and rare conditions, Their clinical picture is very diverse, they can be loclaized or genaralized. Most frequently, we find parainfectious, drug-related and paraneoplastic vasculitides, less commonly in connective tissue diseases, after radiotherapy or transplantation. Vasculitides may be associated to infection of any origin. Read More

Three Patterns of Cutaneous Involvement in Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis.

J Adv Res 2020 Jul 7;24:311-315. Epub 2020 May 7.

National Referral Center for Rare Systemic Autoimmune Diseases, Cochin Hospital, AP-HP, Paris Descartes University, Paris, France.

Background: Skin involvement in granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) is common and can appear as an initial presentation of the disease or more commonly through its course.

Case Presentation: We report a case of a 24-year-old male patient, previously diagnosed as having GPA, admitted with fever, hemoptysis, generalized hemorrhagic blisters associated with arthralgia, fatigue, myalgia, nasal crusting, and vertigo. Three weeks prior to admission, he developed erythematous papules on both elbows, and purpuric papules on both lower limbs. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, National Referral Center for Rare Systemic Autoimmune Diseases, Hôpital Cochin, AP-HP, 27, rue du Faubourg Saint-Jacques, 75679, Paris Cedex 14, France.

Cutaneous vasculitis is an inflammatory disease affecting the dermal blood vessel walls. The skin is a privileged organ in the setting of vasculitis since it is easily accessible for physical examination and safe biopsy, allowing an accurate characterization of inflammatory lesions. The skin is often involved. Read More

[Cutaneous vasculitis and vasculopathy : Differential diagnosis in biopsies of the lower extremities].

Pathologe 2020 Jul;41(4):355-363

, Dermatopathologie Lübeck, Deutschland.

The skin is one of the most frequently involved organs in primary systemic and secondary vasculitis; moreover, a vasculitis can occur as single organ vasculitis, limited to the skin. For most types of vasculitis, the lower extremities constitute common sites with clinical symptoms of palpable purpura, nodules, and ulcers. In histopathology of cutaneous vasculitis, it is of utmost importance to correctly identify the vessel types involved and to discriminate between vasculitic vessel damage, unspecific reactive vessel changes, vascular occlusive diseases, noninflammatory purpura, or perivascular infiltrates due to other inflammatory skin diseases.

Cutaneous arteriolitis: A novel cutaneous small vessel vasculitis disorder clinicopathologically different from cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa and cutaneous venulitis.

J Cutan Pathol 2020 Apr 27. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Meguro Chen Dermatology Clinic, Tokyo, Japan.

Cutaneous vasculitis can be classified into two types based on the affected vessel size: small vessel vasculitis predominantly affecting dermal venules, and muscular vessel vasculitis as found in cutaneous arteritis predominantly affecting arteries located at the dermal-subcutaneous junction. We describe two cases with a novel small vessel vasculitis disorder, which exclusively affected arterioles in the mid-dermis, and demonstrate clinical and pathological difference distinct from cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa and cutaneous venulitis. Both patients were male, and presented with painful infiltrative plaques, involving the palms, soles, and thighs without extracutaneous involvement except for fever and arthralgia. Read More

Clostridioides difficile infection in a patient with immunoglobulin A vasculitis: a triggering factor or a rare complication of the disease? A case-based review.

Rheumatol Int 2020 Jun 21;40(6):997-1000. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Evangelismos General Hospital, 45-47 Ipsilantou Str, Athens, Greece.

IgA vasculitis, formerly known as Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP), is the most common form of systemic vasculitis in children and is characterized by inflammation of the small vessels with typical deposition of IgA immune complexes. It is a leukocytoclastic type of vasculitis and is characterized by a tetrad of clinical manifestations: non-thrombocytopenia or coagulopathy-induced palpable purpura, arthritis, or arthralgia, gastrointestinal, and renal involvement. The exact cause of IgA vasculitis is not known yet, although infections, vaccinations and insect bites have been implicated in the appearance of the disease. Read More

We describe two cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who presented with cutaneous manifestations. Leukemia cutis (LC) is the cutaneous presentation of any type of leukemia and occurs in 10% to 15% of patients with AML, but cutaneous infiltration of AML rarely precedes the involvement of the bone marrow or peripheral blood and is called as "aleukemia cutis."

Background: Urticarial vasculitis (UV) is a rare type of leukocytoclastic vasculitis characterized by long lasting urticarial skin lesions and poor response to treatment. As of yet, no clinical guidelines, diagnostic criteria, or treatment algorithms exist, and the approaches to the diagnostic workup and treatment of UV patients may differ globally. We conducted an online survey to examine how UV patients are diagnosed and treated by international specialists and to reveal the greatest challenges in managing UV patients worldwide. Read More

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 Feb 25. Epub 2020 Feb 25.

Department of Pathology, Advent Health Orlando, Orlando, FL.

Localized chronic fibrosing vasculitis (LCFV) is a rare cutaneous fibroinflammatory and vasculitic process of poorly defined etiology. Furthermore, controversy remains as to whether LCFV represents a primary pathologic process or a histologic pattern. The current case documents a 52-year-old male patient with a scrotal mass and clinical history of a retroperitoneal mass as well as a previously resected tumor of the right submandibular salivary gland displaying morphologic features of eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis.

Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a small-vessel vasculitis that most commonly affects the postcapillary venules in the skin. It classically presents with purpuric macules that progress to palpable purpura on the bilateral shins 7-10 days after an inciting medication or infection, or in the setting of connective tissue disease, malignancy, or inflammatory bowel disease. Up to 50% of cases have no identifiable cause. Read More

Acute bacterial endocarditis is now common and easily suspected and recognized in the setting of prosthetic valves, injection drug use, or bacteremia with virulent organisms. Conversely, subacute bacterial endocarditis has drastically decreased in incidence, and recognition may be further hampered by the indolent non-specific presentation. Delayed diagnosis is common and can lead to serious complications and fatalities. Read More
