Autoerythrocyte sensitization syndrome (ASS) (Gardner-Diamond syndrome) is characterized by painful ecchymotic lesions affecting mostly women with emotional stress. Although it is widely accepted as a non-inflammatory disease, ASS can be accompanied by some autoimmune diseases. In this case report, we present a case with ASS associated with cutaneous vasculitis. We also briefly discuss the possible inflammatory features of ASS. (C) 2008 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
