Abstract

• A patient was seen with cold urticaria and urticarialike lesions with palpable purpura, acquired hypocomplementemia, low levels of circulating immune complexes, and skin biopsy evidence of necrotizing vasculitis. The association of cold urticaria with urticarialike vasculitis may represent a previously unrecognized subset of urticarial vasculitis.
