Özet

We report a patient with complete interleukin-12 receptor beta-1 deficiency associated with cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis. The patient experienced Bacille Calmette Guerin, Mycobacterium chelonae, and Salmonella enteritidis infection. Vasculitis affecting both small arteries and postcapillary venules due to deposition of immune complexes was probably caused by S. enteritidis and/or M chelonae infection.
