Cutaneous vasculitis presents with a variety of clinical morphologies and causes significant morbidity. A total of 85 patients with cutaneous vasculitis at Hospital Kuala Lumpur were retrospectively reviewed. Palpable purpura was seen in 49.4% and frequently involved the lower limbs (50.6%). Identifiable causes include drugs (28.2%), infections (20.0%) and connective tissue disorders (16.5%). Non steroidal antiinflammatory were the commonest group of drugs responsible for 25% of cases while B-haemolytic streptococci was the leading infectious cause (64.7%).
