Cutaneous vasculitis: a review

Journal of Cutaneous Pathology

Mar 19, 2003

A N CrowsonCynthia Magro

PMID: 12641775

Abstract

As the skin is commonly involved in systemic vasculitic disorders as well as those hypersensitivity states whose expression is largely skin-confined, cutaneous vasculitic lesions offer a window to diagnosis and a ready source of accessible tissue for biopsy. In this review, we discuss t...read more

Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia is a cancer that originates in B cells and is characterized by the overproduction of macroglobulins. Symptoms include vision impairment, bleeding, and nervous system problems. Discover the latest research on Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia here.

Bullous Pemphigoid

Bullous pemphigoid is a chronic and relatively benign subepidermal blistering disease usually of the elderly and without histopathologic acantholysis. Discover the latest research on bullous pemphigoid here.

Churg-Strauss Syndrome

Churg-Strauss syndrome, also known as eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) or allergic granulomatosis, is an extremely rare autoimmune condition that causes inflammation of small and medium-sized blood vessels (vasculitis) in persons with a history of airway allergic hypersensitivity (atopy). Discover the latest research on Churg-Strauss syndrome here.

Lupus Vasculitis

Lupus vasculitis is a complication of systemic lupus erythematosus in which the autoimmune response causes the deposition of immune complexes within the blood vessels. Discover the latest research on lupus vasculitis here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disorder which can affect and damage any organ system in the body. It has a diverse range of immunological manifestations and is more prominent in young women, with the exact etiology still unknown. Here is the latest research on systemic lupus erythematosus.

Schoenlein-Henoch Purpura

Schoenlein-Henoch purpura is a systemic non-thrombocytopenic purpura caused by hypersensitivity vasculitis and deposition of IgA-containing immune complexes within the blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney. Discover the latest research on Schoenlein-Henoch purpura here.

Sjogren's Syndrome

Sjogren's syndrome is a chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disease in which the salivary and lacrimal glands undergo progressive destruction by lymphocytes and plasma cells resulting in decreased production of saliva and tears. Discover the latest research on Sjogren's syndrome here.

IgA Deficiency

IgA deficiency, the most common primary immunodeficiency, is a very heterogeneous clinical disorder which may be associated with a variety of infections, allergies, autoimmune disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, and genetic disorders. Here is the latest research.


Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly known as Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), is a long-term systemic disorder that involves the formation of granulomas and inflammation of blood vessels.Discover the latest research on GPA here.

Cryoglobulinemia

Cryoglobulinemia is a disease characterized by large immunoglobulin aggregates that precipitate at low body temperatures, termed cryoglobulins. Discover the latest research on cryoglobulinemia here.
