ALFONSO TRUJILLO, Israel et al. Microscopic polyangiitis with neurological affection: A case report. Rev cubana med [online]. 2005, vol.44, n.5-6. ISSN 0034-7523.

The case of a 50-year-old black patient that at about a year ago began to observe purpuric lesions, blisters, ulcers and edemas in the inferior third of his legs, accompanied with sensation of heat and pain, was presented. He also suffered from arthritis of the joints of both hands and ankles, associated with decrease of sensitivity and muscular strength in both upper limbs. During that time, he had several treatments without improvement. For that reason, it was decided his admission in this hospital, where he underwent skin biopsy and electromiography. This case was interconsulted with Rheumatology and Neurology specialists. It was discussed by a Dermatology team and there was also a clinicopathologic discussion. A microscopic polyangiitis with neurological affection was diagnosed.

Palabras clave : Purpuric lesions; microscopic polyangiitis; neurological affection.
