Abstract

Leucocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a small-vessel vasculitis affecting the postcapillary venules presenting as papules, purpura and maculopapular rash, occurring as a primary disorder or secondary to malignancies, drugs, infections and connective tissue diseases. The causative agents implicated are Streptococcus spp., Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium leprae, Mycobacterium lepromatosis, and viruses, e.g., hepatitis, influenza and HIV. Scrub typhus has rarely been associated with LCV. We reported a rare case of anti-neutrophilic cytoplasmic antibody-positive LCV due to scrub typhus in a 56 year old male who presented with fever and purpuric lesions and was successfully treated with oral steroids.
