|Abstract: ||Vasculitis has been linked to several processes, like infections, drugs
and allergic, rheumatologic and neoplastic diseases.
Neoplasm-associated vasculitis described in the medical literature has
mostly been reported in association with haemotological neoplasms.
Adenocarcinoma of rectum presenting as leucocytoclastic vasculitis is
rare. We present a case of a 43-year-old male with paraneoplastic
leucocytoclastic vasculitis preceding the manifestation of
adenocarcinoma rectum. The vasculitis subsided on resection of the
rectal malignancy and the patient did not require steroid therapy
