Abstract :

Vasculitis is an inflammatory disorder of blood vessels, can affect vessels of any type in any organ. Gastrointestinal (GI) manifestations of vasculitis are considered rare and the presentation is often nonspecific ranging from gastrointestinal dysfunction such as motility disorders to ischemia that may result in ulceration and perforation. GI involvement is frequent in polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), Henoch-Sch├?┬Ânlein purpura and also often noted in microscopic polyangitis and Takayasu arteritis. The diagnosis and classification of vasculitis depends on a combination of clinical, serological, radiological and histological findings. In this report we describe a new case of localized vasculitis of the gastrointestinal tract involving the celiac trunk.
