Cutaneous Vasculitis

(Cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis; leukoklastische vasculitis; cutaneous leukocytoclastic angiitis, cutaneous necrotizing venulitis, hypersensitivity vasculitis)

The cutaneous vasculitis is a vasculitis of small and medium-sized blood vessels in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, but not the internal organs. It can purpura, petechiae or ulcers develop. The diagnosis is made by biopsy. The treatment depends on the etiology and extent of disease.

Vasculitis can affect small or medium sized vessels in the skin. A vasculitis that affects the small blood vessels of the skin (z. B. arterioles, capillaries, venules, postcapillary), tends to cause lesions such as purpura, petechiae, and possibly flat ulcers. Livedo reticularis, nodules and deep ulcers are caused generally by a vasculitis of low, medium or large vessels. Any primary or secondary vasculitis can affect the skin, including those due to serum sickness, infections (eg., Hepatitis C), carcinomas, rheumatological or other immunological diseases and drug intolerance.
