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.

Klinik für Rheumatologie und klinische Immunologie, Universität zu Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538, Lübeck, Deutschland.

Small vessel vasculitis is characterized by a necrotizing inflammation of the vessel wall predominantly with involvement of small intraparenchymal arteries, arterioles, capillaries and venules. Medium-sized and occasionally large vessels can also be involved. Antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (granulomatosis with polyangiitis, microscopic polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis) are differentiated from immune complex vasculitides based on immunopathological and serological aspects.
