A #dermtwitter, #medtwitter, and #medstudenttwitter #tweetorial! PC: @dermnetnz. Let's kick off this #MedEd #FOAMEd #medthread with a question.

With LP, which one of the following body sites is most commonly involved?

1/
The correct answer is wrists! LP lesions are most commonly seen on flexor wrists, trunk, medial thighs, and shins. It very rarely involves the face.

The mnemonic for the clinical appearance of LP is to remember the "Ps."
Pruritic (!!!)
Purple
Polygonal/Planar
Papules

2/
You can also make out white and gray lacy streaks and puncta. This is called "Wickham Striae" which helps confirm the diagnosis (1).

Notably, LP also can go to the oropharynx, which can cause erosive lesions that are painful. Wickham Striae are easier to see in the mouth (2).

It's #tweetorial time! Read on for a #medthread on:

Cutaneous Small Vessel #vasculitis (CSVV)!

#MedEd #FOAMEd #dermtwitter #dermatology #medtwitter #rheumtwitter pc: @dermnetnz
1/
I've heard different ways to organize the vasculitides over the years, but by the far the most common is by vessel size. As a #dermatologist, I see the small vessel vasculitides most often, so we'll focus on that today. Yes, Takayasu's important, but I'll save that for later!
2/
There is a relatively limited list of possible diagnoses with CSVV. I've included the most common below.

The blue I lump together as they are similar, and biopsy results help you differentiate.
The red are the ANCA-associated.
The green are the unique ones.
