General Discussion

Cutaneous Necrotizing Vasculitis is characterized by inflammation and tissue damage (necrosis) of blood vessel walls and associated skin (cutaneous) lesions. Cutaneous Necrotizing Vasculitis may be a primary disease process or occur due to or in association with a number of different underlying disorders (e.g., certain infections, certain autoimmune disorders) or other factors (e.g., allergic reaction or hypersensitivity to certain medications, toxins, or inhaled environmental irritants [NORD 2005]
