Abstract
Purpura can be a clinical manifestation of various diseases. The causes of purpura are divided into two main categories: thrombocytopenia and vasculopathies. Cutaneous vasculitis belongs to the latter group. Cutaneous vasculitis should be considered a symptom rather than a medical entity. Some forms of cutaneous vasculitis are limited to the skin and are known as isolated cutaneous vasculitis, while other forms may be part of a systemic disease with a more serious prognosis. It is essential to clarify the type and severity of the disease for optimal patient care. A delay in the identification and start of treatment can be the cause of serious and potentially irreversible complications. Through this article, we will propose a step-by-step approach from diagnosis to patient care.
