Vasculitis involves inflammation of the blood vessels. The inflammation can cause the walls of the blood vessels to thicken, which reduces the width of the passageway through the vessel. If blood flow is restricted, it can result in organ and tissue damage. There are many types of vasculitis, and most of them are rare Leukocytoclastic vasculitis is more likely to be linked to malignancy in patients older than 50 years. 2,5,6,8,9 Cutaneous vasculitis may precede the diagnosis of cancer by weeks, months, or even years and is generally associated with a worse prognosis. 9 Although more frequently related to hematogenous malignancies (lymphoma and leukemia. .

Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) refers to small blood vessel inflammation. It's also known as hypersensitivity vasculitis and hypersensitivity angiitis. The word leukocytoclastic comes from leukocytoclasia, a process where neutrophils (immune cells) break down and release debris. Vasculitis means inflammation of the blood vessels Leukocytoclastic vasculitis causes. Leukocytoclastic vasculitis may be caused by a specific drug or occur in association with an infection, but it may also be idiopathic, meaning there is no known cause.

Multiple causes, including infection, medications, and diseases associated with immune complexes have been implicated in the pathogenesis. Cutaneous LCV presents as palpable purpura ofte Microscopic polyangiitis (leukocytoclastic or hypersensitivity angiitis) is the most common vasculitis from antibiotic use. Microscopic polyangiitis differs from PAN in that it affects small vessels only.

Background. Heterogenous group of disorders, clinico-pathologic process characterized by inflammation within walls of blood vessels, compromise of vessel lumen, and resulting ischemia. Presentation varies greatly depending on etiology and specific vessels affected. Classification by size of vessels predominantly involved Vasculitis is uncommon. Overall, in every 100,000 people in the UK, only 10-15 will develop vasculitis each year.
