Descriptive dx...: Many inflammatory skin biopsies are not diagnostic of a particular disease entity. The pathologist can describe the pattern of injury present which usually will help the dermatologist determine what is going on with the clinical history. There is inflammatory damage in your small capillaries-small vessel vasculitis seen in autoimmune diseases often. Direct immuno fluorescence test may also help.
