• Cutaneous purpura In a patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may cause concern to the managing physician because of the possibility of rheumatoid vasculitis or purpura due to qualitative or quantitative platelet defects from rheumatologic therapy. The pigmented purpuric eruptions are a group of chronic dermatoses of unknown causes that are characterized by clinical purpura and histologic capillaritis. We saw a patient with RA and a pigmented purpuric eruption.
