Urticarial leukocytoclastic vasculitis with cold urticaria. Report of a case and review of the literature

Abstract: A patient was seen with cold urticaria and urticarialike lesions with palpable purpura, acquired hypocomplementemia, low levels of circulating immune complexes, and skin biopsy evidence of necrotizing vasculitis. The association of cold urticaria with urticarialike vasculitis may represent a previously unrecognized subset of urticarial vasculitis.

“…However^ the clinical, laboratory, and foUow-up data in our patients show that this is not the case. Sanchez et al (1982) and others emphasize that systemic symptoms, including arthralgias and abdominal pain, characterize urticarial vasculitis (MeDuffic et al, 1973;Soter et al, 1974;Soter, 1977;Sanchez et al, 1982;Wanderer et al, 1983); our 10 patients had no systemic symptoms associated with the urticarial lesions. Others have emphasized that hypocomplementaemia and urticaria may be associated with systemic immunological disease, particularly lupus erythematosus (O'Loughlin, Schroeter & Jordon, 1978;Provost et al, 1980).…”

“…This contrasts strongly with acute urticaria, for which a cause can often be established. On a pathophysiologic basis, urticaria can be subdivided into IgE‐dependent ( 11–15), complement‐mediated ( 16–24, nonimmunologic ( 25–29), and idiopathic forms ( 11–13).…”

“…In many cases the cause of CNV remains unknown (i.e. Schonlein-Henoch purpura, urticarial vasculitis, erythema elevatum diutinium, nodular vasculitis, livedoid vasculitis, atrophie blanche, cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa) [7,9,[12][13][14][15][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76][77][78][79][80][81][82][83][84][85][86].…”
