cutaneos vasculitis

J M de Sousa Pinto, M Sacramento Marques, T Estanislau Correia
Lichen planus (LP) has been reported in association with chronic active hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis and other chronic liver diseases. The occurrence of LP in persons with hepatitis C virus (HCV) was reported by Robert et al., and the possible relationship between LP and hepatitis virus has also been supported by cases of LP following hepatitis B vaccination. Exacerbation or appearance of LP during the treatment of chronic hepatitis C, lymphoproliferative diseases and melanoma with alpha-interferon (IFN-alpha) and improvement of these diseases after discontinuation of this drug indicate that IFN-alpha may possibly induce LP...

The authors report a case of cutaneo-systemic necrotizing vasculitis, predominantly affecting the skin and digestive tract, observed in an asthmatic patient undergoing desensitization with Graminaceae pollen extract and mite-enriched house dust. Vasculitis developed 22 months after the first injections, became autonomous after the end of treatment and responded well to systemic corticosteroid therapy in daily doses of 1 mg/kg. The patient was followed up for 8 months during which the vasculitis did not recur, despite reduction in steroid dosage...
