Abstract

Pustular vasculitis of the hands is a distinctive clinical entity. It has recently been proposed by some authors to rename pustular vasculitis of the hands as 'neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands' to reflect its histological resemblance to the neutrophilic dermatoses. We report the case of a 66-year-old woman who presented with clinical appearances resembling pustular vasculitis of the hands associated with palmo-plantar pustulosis due to Streptococcus-induced 'pustular vasculitis'.
