Cutaneous and other vasculitides are specific inflammations of the blood vessel wall that can take place in any organ system of the body including the skin. Vasculitis has been traditionally divided according to the size of the vessel involved (small, medium, and large). Vasculitis is more of a reaction pattern rather than a specific disease entity.

Purpose Of Review: Autoinflammatory diseases (AIDs) constitute several disorders that share similar characteristics, clinical features, disease course, and prognosis. They are characterized by the presence of recurrent episodes of unprovoked inflammation due to dysregulated innate immune system in the absence of autoantibodies or infections. AIDs include periodic fever syndromes and other less commonly growing list of syndromes. Read More

Background And Objective: Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a small vessel vasculitis that can be limited to the skin but may also affect other organs. Often, its cause is unknown. LCV has previously been reported to occur with the reactivation of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6). Read More

Background: Multiple myeloma is a very heterogeneous disease comprising a number of genetic entities that differ from each other in their evolution, mode of presentation, response to therapy, and prognosis. Due to its more chronic nature and cumulative toxicities that patients develop from multiple lines of treatments, a number of symptoms are associated with multiple myeloma. However, the mechanisms responsible for the relationship between these symptoms and multiple myeloma currently remain unclear. Read More

Background: Palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis (PNGD) is a commonly occurring condition related to systemic autoimmune disease. It is characterized histopathologically by a distinct pattern of granulomatous inflammation in the presence or absence of leukocytoclastic vasculitis. The properties of granulomatous cells in PNGD are still uncertain. Read More

The authors report a case of a 69-year-old man with idiopathic leukocytoclastic cutaneous vasculitis. For three years, the lesions recurred with progressive worsening and were associated with systemic manifestations of low-grade fever, weight loss and raised inflammatory markers. The patient latter presented a 6th cranial nerve involvement, raising the concern of a possible systemic vasculitis, which was latter evidenced by the development of deep vein thrombosis and angina pectoris.

It frequently occurs following an infectious trigger and involves IgA and C3 deposition in small vessel walls. HSP is characterized by palpable purpura plus IgA deposition on biopsy, arthritis/arthralgia, renal involvement (hematuria and/or proteinuria), and/or abdominal pain. Read More

We present a child with bullous IgA vasculitis. Because skin biopsy showed epidermal vesicles with neutrophil infiltration and leukocytoclastic vasculitis in all layers of the dermis, with IgA deposits and tissue eosinophilia, extensive dermal infiltration of neutrophils may have led to both blistering eruptions and tissue eosinophilia in our patient.

Cogan's syndrome (CS) is defined by the combination of hearing loss, vertigo, and ocular inflammation of uncertain cause, and can be associated with variable vessel vasculitis. Vasculitic manifestations may include arteritis (affecting large, medium or small arteries), aortitis, and aortic and mitral valvulitis. Cutaneous manifestations including erythema, papules, subcutaneous nodules, and purpura sometimes occur; however, to date, only six cases have been histologically confirmed to have genuine vasculitis.

Hypersensitivity vasculitis (HV) or leukocytoclastic vasculitis is a rare small-vessel vasculitis that may occur as a manifestation of the body's extreme allergic reaction to a drug, infection, or other foreign substance. Characterized by the presence of inflammatory neutrophils in vessel walls, HV results in inflammation and damage to blood vessels, primarily in the skin. Histologically, when neutrophils undergo leukocytoclasia and release nuclear debris into the vasculature, vascular damage manifests as palpable purpura. Read More

The diagnosis and management of pulmonary hydatid cyst disease represents an important clinical problem in countries of the world that are endemic to echinococcal infection. Atypical clinical and radiologic findings including multiple cavitary lesions in the lung and pleural effusion may lead to misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis in these patients.

Cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis arises from immune complex deposition and dysregulated complement activation in small blood vessels. There are many causes, including dysregulated host response to infection, drug reactions, and various autoimmune conditions. It is increasingly recognised that some monogenic autoinflammatory diseases cause vasculitis, although genetic causes of vasculitis are extremely rare. Read More

Renal cell carcinoma is historically known as the 'great masquerader' with 40% of patients experiencing a paraneoplastic syndrome. Translocation carcinoma represents one-third of renal cancer in paediatric patients but less than 3% of renal cancers in patients aged 18-45 years where the clinical course is often rapidly terminal. There are less than 10 reported cases of leucoclastic vasculitis associated with clear cell carcinoma reported in the literature and 10 case reports of translocation carcinoma in adults. Read More

Systemic urticaria in a 64-year-old woman was diagnosed as leukocytoclastic vasculitis by a punch biopsy of the skin. Her physical findings improved after prescription of prednisolone at a dose of 20 mg/day, but the skin rash relapsed with renal dysfunction, proteinuria, and hematuria when the dose of prednisolone was reduced over a period of 9 months to 1 mg/day. She was admitted to our institute for further examination, when urinary protein and plasma creatinine levels were 0. Read More
