A Case of Hypocomplementemic Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Presenting Features of Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis
Kyong-A Lee, Tae-Sun Ha
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(1):81-84.   Published online January 15, 2005
Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a systemic disorder characterized by leukocytoclastic vasculitis that can affect multiple organs predominantly the skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract and kidney. Although the specific pathogenesis of HSP is not known, there are several hypotheses. Although the importance of the complement activation in glomerular injury in HSP has been suggested, the complement levels and the blood pressure in...

Clinical Significance of Gastrointestinal Symptoms and Abdominal Ultrasonographic Findings in Henoch-Schönlein Purpura
Eun Jung Choi, Chang Woo Lee, Du Young Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(1):63-67.   Published online January 15, 2005
Purpose : Henoch-Sch nlein purpura(HSP) is a systemic vasculitis, characterized by cutaneous palpable purpura, gastrointestinal(GI) symptoms, arthritis and renal involvement. In general, the prognosis is determined by GI complication as well as the severity of nephritis. In this study, we analyzed the statistical relationship between the GI symptom and other clinical findings for assessing the prognosis, and evaluated abdominal ultrasonographic...

A Case of Henoch-Schönlein Purpura after Abdominal Blunt Trauma
Sang Eun Lee, Jung Kim, Cheol Hong Kim, Hwang Jae Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):465-469.   Published online April 15, 2004
Henoch-Schönlein purpura is the most common vasculitis in childhood and shows unique clinical features characteristic purpura, arthritis, abdominal pain, intestinal bleeding, nephritis and so forth by IgA mediated leukocytoclastic vasculitis. The etiology of Henoch-Schönlein purpura is unknown, but many variable causative factors are reported such as infection, drugs, vaccination, food, insect bite and so on. Henoch-Schönlein purpura precipitated by trauma...

A Multivariate Analysis of Risk Factors of Renal Involvement in Henoch-Sch nlein Purpura
Min Jee Jeoung, Hyung Eun Yim, Kee Hwan Yoo, Young Sook Hong, Joo Won Lee, Soon Kyum Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):405-411.   Published online April 15, 2004
Purpose : Long-term prognosis of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura(HSP) is determined by the existence and severity of renal involvement. We evaluated the relationship between various clinical features of HSP and the development of renal involvement using univariate and multivariate analyses for early detection and proper management of HSP nephritis. Methods : We performed a retrospective study of 200 children who were diagnosed...
Clinical Study of the Correlation of Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha and the Proteinuria of Henoch-Schönlein Nephritis and Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome
Dong-Ho Jeong, Jeong-Hyun Park, Hye-Cheon Jeong, Hyun-Hoe Koo, Jun-Ho Lee, Tae-Sun Ha
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(2):240-246.   Published online February 15, 2002
Purpose : It is not clear that the development of glomerular injury and aggravation by tumor necrosis factor alpha(TNF-α) is related to intrarenal or serum concentration of TNF-α. So, we studied the relationship between the concentration of TNF-α and aggravation of glomerular damage in the Henoch-Schönlein nephritis(HSN) and idiopathic nephrotic syndrome(INS). Methods : We collected the sera and urines of...

Small Intestinal Infarction Associated with Henoch-Schöenlein Purpura
Myung Ki Han, Yu In Park, Jeong Ho Kim, Jung Joo Lee, Hye Young Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(1):125-130.   Published online January 15, 2002
Henoch-Schöenlein purpura, also known as anaphylactoid purpura, is characterized by palpable purpura, colicky abdominal pain, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, arthralgias, and renal involvement. Histopathologically, the condition represents a vasculitis, and in fact, it may be the most common vasculitis syndrome affecting children. The pathogenesis of Henoch-Schöenlein purpura remains poorly understood, but it is postulated that an unknown antigenic stimulus causes elevation of circulating IgA and that complement...

Relation between Renal and Scrotal Involvement in Henoch-Schönlein Purpura
Eui Seong Lee, Pyung Kil Kim, Young Kwan Park, Hae Won Cheon, Kee Hwan Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(2):260-266.   Published online February 15, 2000
Purpose : Although Henoch-Schönlein purpura(HSP) has been described in detail, there is a paucity of information describing scrotal involvement and risk factors for renal involvement. This study was performed to evaluate the incidence of scrotal involvement and the relationship between renal and nonrenal involvement, including scrotal involvement. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 164 male children who were diagnosed...

Dapsone in a Case with Chronic Recurrent Henoch-Schönlein Purpura
Jin Choi, Soo Jung Lee, Dae Kyun Koh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(11):1574-1578.   Published online November 15, 1999
The most clearly delineated condition with prominent cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis which presents to a pediatrician is Henoch-Schönlein purpura. There is general agreement that in Henoch-Schönlein syndrome the skin manifestations have a very benign long-term course and that corticosteroids are of little value. Dapsone appears to be of special value in diseases characterized by an accumulation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils notably leukocytoclastic...

Study on Anti-neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies in Children with Henoch-Schölein Purpura
Shin Jong Lee, Woo Yeong Chung, Chul Ho Kim, Jeong Nyeo Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(7):970-975.   Published online July 15, 1995
The presence of IgG, IgA and IgM antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies(ANCA) were inves-tigated in 32 children with Henoch-Schölein Purpura(HS purpura), in 14 children with HS pur-pura nephritis who were confirrned by renal biopsy and in 12 control children using flow cytom-etry(FASCan, Beckton-Dickinson, Co, USA) and indirect immunofluorescence technique(Sigma Diagnostics, USA). There were no evidence of IgG, IgA or IgM cytoplasmic ANCA(p-ANCA),...
EEG Abnormalities in Henoch-Schölein Purpura
Hae Wom Cheon, Dong Gun Park, Kee Hwan Yoo, Joo Won Lee, Soon Kyum Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(11):1600-1606.   Published online November 15, 1994
Schölein-Henoch purpura is a generalized small vessel vasculitis characterized by non-thrombocytopenic purpura, arthritis, abdominal pain and nephritis. In 1913 Osler described an allergic purpura associated with hemiplegia. After then Lewis et al. Reported the cases of Schölein-Henoch purpura associated with convulsion, coma, confusion, intracranial hemorrhage, and chorea, CNS complication has been reported in 1-8% of children and subsided spontaneously in...
Clinical Studies of Henoch-Schölein Purpura Which was Considered as Acute Abdomen

Henoch-Schölein purpura is a common pediatric disease presenting most frequently with skin, gastrointestinal, joint and renal manifestations. But in cases are infrequently only severe gastointestinal manifestations. It is hard to diagnose promptly and exactly. Clinical manifestations and laboratory findings were observed and analyzed in 20 cases with Henoch-Schölein purpura which were considered as acute abdomen, hospitalized at Kyung Hee university Hospital...
