We describe three patients who presented with a striking erythematous non-blanching annular eruption and features of lymphocytic thrombophilic arteritis (LTA), with a prominent lymphocytic vasculitis involving deep dermal vessels. Lymphocytic inflammation was also evident in the superficial vessels and one patient had small superficial ulcers over the ankle area resembling livedoid vasculopathy (LV). Multiple biopsies demonstrated a persistent absence of neutrophils in the infiltrate consistent with a lymphocytic process...

Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (CPAN) is a rare diagnosis which is distinct from polyarteritis nodosa (PAN). PAN is a medium-vessel vasculitis which can affect multiple organs and classically produces microaneurysms in the vasculature. CPAN is limited to the skin mainly affecting small vessels. There is an absence of microaneurysms in CPAN and it does not affect internal organs. However, the histopathological findings on the skin are similar to PAN. CPAN rarely progresses to PAN but relapses more often. We will illustrate a challenging case of a patient with CPAN who developed gangrenous infarcts despite initial immunosuppressive treatment with high-dose steroids and azathioprine...

OBJECTIVE: Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a necrotizing vasculitis of medium/small arteries. We aimed to examine the characteristics of adult- and childhood-onset PAN. METHODS: Fifteen pediatric (˂ 18 years) and 22 adult PAN patients who fulfilled the Ankara 2008 and American College of Rheumatology 1990 criteria, respectively, were included in the study. RESULTS: Five children had cutaneous and all the rest of the patients had systemic PAN...

Extraintestinal infections due to Clostridium difficile are uncommon. When such infections occur, extraintestinal C. difficile isolates are usually identical to fecal isolates. We present a rare case of a large postoperative abscess caused by C. difficile infection, in which different C. difficile strains were isolated from the abscess and from feces of the patient. An 82-year-old woman with cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa developed pain, skin ulcers, and extensive necrosis of the right leg. Above-knee amputation was performed without stopping antiplatelet therapy, leading to postoperative hematoma...

We describe a case of lymphocytic thrombophilic arteritis in a 15-year-old girl who had previously taken minocycline for a year. Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa and lymphocytic thrombophilic arteritis share many features and may both be triggered by minocycline. There may be a long latency between drug exposure to minocycline and development of disease.

REVIEW
Francois Chasset, Camille Francès
Dermatologic manifestations are observed in almost all systemic vasculitides, even in large-and medium-vessel vasculitides, although such vessels are not found in the skin. Cutaneous manifestations may be related to a direct skin localization of the systemic vasculitis or a non-specific process associated with the vasculitis. According to the 2012 International Chapel Hill consensus, the two major variants of large-vessel vasculitides are Takayasu arteritis and giant-cell arteritis. In Europe and North America, acute inflammatory nodules or erythema nodosum-like lesions are the most commonly observed skin lesions with Takayasu arteritis...

An elderly woman presented with a 3-month history of nonhealing, tender ulcers involving the right calf and both forearms. She denied any history of similar lesions or trauma. Two trials of oral antibiotics had led to no improvement. Her medical history was significant for rheumatoid arthritis treated with methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, and prednisone. A review of clinical manifestations was otherwise negative for disease. Physical examination of the patient's right calf revealed two punched-out ulcers with central necrotic black eschars, underlying retiform purpuric pattern, and mild fibrinopurulent drainage (Figure 1)...

Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a vasculitic disease characterized primarily by necrotizing vasculitis - inflammatory lesions in blood vessels that lead to vessel wall necrosis. Our understanding of PAN and necrotizing vasculitis has evolved over time. In addition to PAN, necrotizing vasculitis is now a recognized feature of a broad range of diseases with different aetiopathogenesis. For example, necrotizing vasculitis associated with hepatitis B virus infection has a different aetiopathogeneis to PAN and is now classified as a separate disease...

Nonsystemic vasculitic neuropathy (NSVN) is an under-recognized single-organ vasculitis of peripheral nerves that can only be diagnosed with a nerve biopsy. A Peripheral Nerve Society guideline group published consensus recommendations on the classification, diagnosis and treatment of NSVN in 2010, and new diagnostic criteria for vasculitic neuropathy were developed by the Brighton Collaboration in 2015. In this Review, we provide an update on the classification, diagnosis and treatment of NSVN. NSVN subtypes include Wartenberg migratory sensory neuropathy and postsurgical inflammatory neuropathy...

Arthritis has been reported as an acute pattern, generally evanescent with oligoarthritis, mostly affecting knees and ankles in childhood systemic polyarteritis nodosa. However, chronic polyarthritis with morning stiffness mimicking juvenile idiopathic arthritis has not been reported. We describe the case of a 4-year old girl who had additive and chronic polyarthritis with edema, tenderness, pain on motion and morning stiffness for 2 months. After 45 days, she also presented painful subcutaneous nodules and erythematous-violaceous lesions in the extensor region of upper and lower limbs...

Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a necrotising vasculitis that involves medium and small vessels. PAN generally presents with constitutional, cutaneous, neurological, renal and gastrointestinal manifestations. However, PAN initially involving a single organ/system is uncommon. Here, we present a 42-year-old man who was hospitalised because of severe right upper quadrant abdominal pain that started 2 months before. Physical examination was remarkable for right upper quadrant abdominal tenderness. Abdominopelvic CT showed lymphadenopathy but no hepatic, gallbladder, pancreatic, intestinal or renal abnormalities...

OBJECTIVE: There has been a significant decrease in the number of published reports of classical polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) in the post-Chapel Hill consensus conference (CHCC) nomenclature era with only two series published from Asia. We report a case series of PAN from north India. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of all patients diagnosed to have PAN according to American College of Rheumatology criteria/CHCC nomenclature. The details of clinical presentation, investigation findings, treatment details and outcomes were noted from the records...

Purpuric lesions appear in acral distribution in a variety of conditions and often provide clues to the clinical diagnosis. Purpuric means "hemorrhagic"-that is, the lesions do not blanch from pressure. This review focuses on dermatoses that produce hemorrhagic lesions in acral distribution from the large groups of the vasculitic diseases and their mimics. Cutaneous small vessel vasculitis is confined to the skin, involves mainly postcapillary venules, and has the hallmark manifestation of palpable purpura...

Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (CPAN) is a chronic, indolent, single organ arteritis that generally presents with lower extremity nodules and/or livedo racemosa, accompanied by malaise and arthralgias. CPAN is often triggered by infection, commonly Group A streptococcal species, and is considered an autoimmune reaction. Scarring from surgery and obliterative lymphangiitis from bacterial cellulitis are the causes of lymphedema. Lymphedematous skin is predisposed to autoimmune disorders. Herein we report a 53-year-old woman who developed CPAN restricted to a localized area of the right upper arm-shoulder that had undergone multiple surgeries, complicated by episodes of Streptococcus viridans cellulitis...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The present review will focus on recent publications in cutaneous vasculitides. RECENT FINDINGS: Some histopathological and clinical features, such as papillary dermal edema, perivascular C3 deposition, clinically evident edema, and lesions above the waist, may point out renal or gastrointestinal involvement in Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). HSP associated with familial Mediterranean fever differs from typical isolated HSP by showing no deposits of IgA, much younger age, and location of the lesions on the face or the trunk...

OBJECTIVE: Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a systemic necrotizing vasculitis of medium-sized visceral vessels. However, cutaneous arteritis (CA) and gastrointestinal (GI) vasculitis are forms of single-organ vasculitis having indistinguishable histopathologic findings from PAN. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the clinical characteristics, treatment, and outcomes of patients with systemic PAN, CA, and GI vasculitis. METHODS: Retrospective cohorts were assembled, consisting of patients with PAN, CA, and GI vasculitis between 1980 and 2014...
