Caption: Purpura fulminans in meningiococcal disease. 18-month-old baby boy in hospital with purpura fulminans caused by meningococci bacteria. The extensive purple rash, known as purpura fulminans, is an acute, often fatal, thrombotic disorder. The blood spots, bruising and discolouration of the skin is due to coagulation in small blood vessels. This results in skin necrosis (tissue death). The condition can arise from meningitis and meningiococcal septiceamia. Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges, the lining that encloses the brain and spinal cord. It is caused by viral or bacterial infection.
