Abstract

PAIXAO, Maurício Pedreira  and  MIOT, Hélio Amante. Cutaneuos cryoglobulinemic vasculitis induced by chronic hepatitis C virus infection. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.2, pp. 151-155. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000200009.

Cutaneous vasculitis may represent a great clinical challenge, even after careful dermatological examination and laboratory assessment. The authors present a case of cutaneous cryoglobulinemic vasculitis associated to chronic hepatitis C virus infection, pointing out the importance of the dermatological examination for diagnostic investigation. They discuss about the importance of defining the etiology and making correct classification for appropriate prognosis and treatment of cutaneous vasculitis.

Keywords : Cryoglobulinemia; Hepatitis C; Vasculitis.
