Cutaneous periarteritis nodosa: immunofluorescence studies

Abstract: The study of ten cases of cutaneous periarteritis nodosa by direct immunofluorescence microscopy of excision biopsy specimens revealed positive findings in nine. Deposition of IgM was found in the vessel walls in six cases, and C3 was observed in four; however, only in two cases was C3 found with IgM in the vessel walls. Deposits of IgM in the superficial vessels were found in five cases, although only the deep muscular vessels showed evidence of the vasculitis in cutaneous periarteritis nodosa. Serum hepatiti… Show more

“…The same problem was arisen by the so called cutaneous vasculitis, in which 52 percent of the patients supposed to have a cutaneous variety of periarteritis nodosa, actually had associated neuromuscular manifestations [12]. It thus seems more appropriate to consider that the patients with apparently isolated vasculitic neuropathy are affected by a low-grade vasculitis, symptomatic in nerves only, because tissue ischemia is more likely to be symptomatic in nerves than in most other organs.…”
