Özet

Vasculitis is defined as inflammation directed at vessels, which compromises or destroys the vessel wall leading to haemorrhagic and/or ischaemic events. Although the most common clinical finding of vasculitis is palpable purpura, patients may also present with other lesions including urticaria, infiltrative erythema, petechiae, purpura, purpuric papules, haemorrhagic vesicles and bullae, nodules, livedo reticularis, deep ulcers and digital gangrene. Classification systems have been important in the study of vasculitic diseases, and the most widely accepted one is based on the size of the vessel involved. This article will focus on the most common forms of cutaneous vasculitis. (Turkderm 2010; 44: 50-60)
