AbstractVasculitis is a rare, inflammatory condition of the blood vessels whereby excess leukocytes within the vessel leads to a loss of structural integrity, and possible destruction. This family of disorders can lead to varying degrees of organ and skin damage. Vasculitis may be due to primary disease or secondary due to an underlying disorder, drug reaction, or infection. In a large number of cases cutaneous vasculitis may present as an idiopathic condition and affect both small and medium sized vessels. We present a case of small and medium-vessel vasculitis on the lower extremity with cutaneous manifestations, without an identifiable cause.
