Abstract INTRODUCTION: Vasculitides occurring during parasitic infection are rare and may imply different mechanisms. METHODS: A case report of cutaneous vasculitis and visceral damage during a larva migrans syndrome. RESULTS: We report the case of a 64-year-old man who developed a purpura along with fever, respiratory failure, abdominal pain and myalgia. Immunological screening showed a high titer of both antinuclear antibodies and anti-double-stranded DNA antibodies along with anti-C1q antibodies. Toxocara canis serology returned highly positive with a positive western-blot. The use of antiparasitic drugs in combination with corticosteroids resulted in a dramatic improvement in the patient's condition. CONCLUSIONS: Clinicians should be aware of the systemic complications that may occur during Toxocara canis infection, including vasculitis and immunological disorder.
