Necrotizing angiitis or vasculitis are terms applied to clinical disorders in which there is segmental inflammation of the blood vessels. Division with respect to the size of the affected blood vessels is into those disorders in which large blood vessels, especially arteries and those in which small vessels, notably arterioles and venules are involved. Cutaneous necrotizing angiitis may be present in the skin as a polymorphous panoply of lesions however, the most diagnostic and consistently present lesion is the erythematous papule that does not blanch with the application of external pressure.
