A Arterioles
B Post-capillary venules

C Capillaries
D Medium sized arteries

Ans. B Post-capillary venules

Hypersensitivity vasculitis is clearly mentioned in Harrison 18th/2798nas the other name for cutaneous vasculitis. How- ever Robbins confuses the issue by mentioning that Hypersensitivity vasculitis is the other name if microscopic angiitis. How-ever, we would prefer to go with Harrison in this context

Direct quote from Harrison 18th/2798 Post capillary venules are the most commonly involved vessels; capillaries and arterioles may be involved less frequently
