Vasculitis presents with a range of clinical manifestations, many of which affect the skin. Diagnosing and classifying vasculitis can prove challenging. Particularly given the lack of unified criteria that are both useful as a research tool and clinically relevant. Also, vasculitis may be secondary to a wide range of conditions, making the prompt recognition and treatment of associated disorders essential for appropriate patient management. This article will highlight the classification, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of the cutaneous vasculitides.
