Abstract

Leukocytoclastic vasculitis is extremely rare, although cutaneous involvement is frequently encountered in ulcerative colitis. Concomitant leukocytoclastic vasculitis and nephrotic syndrome in ulcerative colitis were not reported previously. In this article, we aimed to present a case of ulcerative colitis developing nephrotic syndrome and leukocytoclastic vasculitis after mesalamine.
