Exercise-induced purpura

4 April 2012, by RAMELET A.-A.


Exercise-induced purpura (EIP or exercise-induced vasculitis) is a purely cutaneous vasculitis affecting the ankles and legs after unusually strenuous exercise in warm weather, and resolving spontaneously in a few days. Recurrence is common during subsequent periods of similar exercise.
