A 37-year-old hepatitis B male carrier presented with painful nodules over both lower limbs for 10 years. Medium sized vasculitis was confirmed by skin biopsy. Features of peripheral neuropathy, cryoglobulinaemia, elevated anti-cardiolipin IgM and hypocomplementaemia were demonstrated. He responded well to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and systemic involvement was not found. (H.K. Dermatol. Venereol. Bull. (2003) 11, 86-90)
