  1. a The number of diagnoses is higher than the number of patients, given that in 14 cases more than one diagnosis was selected: six patients with cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis and hepatitis C virus-associated cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis (n = 5) or other vasculitis associated with systemic disease (n = 1); three patients with cutaneous leukocytoclastic angiitis and other vasculitis associated with systemic disease (n = 2) or non-classifiable large vessel vasculitis (n = 1); two patients with single-organ vasculitis and granulomatosis with polyangiitis (n = 1) or other vasculitis associated with systemic disease (n = 1); two patients with other vasculitis associated with systemic disease and polyarteritis nodosa (n = 1) or non-classifiable ANCA-associated vasculitis (n = 1); and one patient with Takayasu‘s arteritis and Hepatitis B virus-associated vasculitis
  2. bAll patients with polyarteritis nodosa had systemic involvement of the disease; all patients with cutaneous arteritis had limited forms of polyarteritis nodosa
