Overview

Lymphocytic vasculitis is a type of cutaneous vasculitis characterized by inflammation of the lymphatic vessels in the skin, which is part of the lymph system. Cutaneous vasculitis can be due to any of several different causes and can have a wide variety of clinical presentations. In most cases, an underlying cause is not found and the disease is self-limiting. In a minority of patients, cutaneous vasculitis can be part of a more severe vasculitis affecting other organs in the body. This is known as systemic vasculitis.[1]
