Recurrent cutaneous vasculitis in cystic fibrosis

Pediatric Dermatology
M S FradinM E Grossman

Abstract

We treated a patient with cystic fibrosis who experienced recurrent episodes of palpable purpura and arthralgias associated with exacerbations of her pulmonary disease. Skin biopsy demonstrated the classic findings of leukocytoclastic vasculitis, and C3 deposits were detected in the dermal blood vessels. Chronic bacterial infection and antibiotics are possible sources of antigen involved in immune complex formation in patients with chronic lung diseases.

Antibodies: Agglutination

Antibody-mediated agglutination is the clumping of cells in the presence of antibody, which binds multiple cells together. This enhances the clearance of pathogens. Find the latest research on antibody-mediated agglutination here.
