Abstract

HENOCH–SCHONLEIN PURPURA - A CASE REPORT OF A NINE YEAR OLD GIRL

Anjali Jayakumar*, Ankitha George, Aleena Sunny, S. Haja Sherief and T. Sivakumar

ABSTRACT

Henoch-Schonlein purpura is a disease which causes irritation and swelling of the small blood vessels in the skin resulting in a rash. The illness usually affects children from 2 to 10 years of age, but it may affect people of any age. It is characterized by purple spots on the skin, joint pain, digestive problems, and glomerulonephritis. It develops primarily as an immune response to an infection however the cause is not fully understood. Most cases relieve without initiation of therapy, but in caseswhich require treatment the main aim is to relieve symptoms such as joint pain, abdominal pain, or swelling. We describe a case report of a pediatric patient who presented with reddish purpuric spots and erythematous rashes over both lower limbs.

Keywords: Henoch-Schonlein purpura, Immunoglobulin vasculitis, Purpura, Rash.
