Systemic autoinflammatory diseases (AIDs) are a group of disorders characterized by recurrent episodes of systemic inflammation. Suspecting the diagnosis can be difficult and many of the clinical manifestations are common to different diseases. Although most of the cutaneous manifestations are non-specific, it is important to know them because sometimes they can lead to the diagnosis. The purpose of this review was to synthesize the main cutaneous lesions of autoinflammatory diseases to aid in their diagnosis.


KEY WORDS: Skin manifestations; Chronic urticaria; Oral ulcer; Vasculitis; Lipodystrophy
