IgA vasculitis, formerly known as Henoch-Schönlein purpura, is a systemic IgA-mediated vasculitis of the small vessels commonly seen in children. The natural history of IgA vasculitis is generally self-limiting; however, one-third of patients experience symptom recurrence and a refractory course. This systematic review examined the use of dapsone in refractory IgA vasculitis cases. A literature search of PubMed databases retrieved...

A Case of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis Complicating Encephalopathy Accompanied by Hypertension and Cerebral Vasculitis
Hee Ra Choi, Eo Jin Kim, Myoung Bum Choi, Jae Young Lim, Chan Hoo Park, Hyang Ok Woo, Hee Sang Youn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(10):1040-1043.   Published online October 15, 2003
Henoch-Shonlein purpura(HSP) is a systemic small-vessel vasculitis that primarily affects the skin, gastrointestinal tract, joints, and kidneys. The nervous system may be involved, less commonly than other organs. When the central nervous system(CNS) was involved, headache, changes in mental status, seizures, and focal neurologic deficits have been reported. Hypertension, uremic encephalopathy, metabolic abnomalities, electrolyte abnormalities, or cerebral vasculitis were suggested...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(6):572-575.   Published online June 15, 2003
Purpose : This study was performed to analyze the endoscopic findings in Henoch-Schonlein purpura patients, and to compare the differences in endoscopic findings according to age and gastrointestinal symptoms. Methods : We examined children with Henoch-Schonlein purpura aged 3 to 15 years between September 1996 and October 2002. The total number studied was 65, consisting of 41 boys and 24...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(7):884-890.   Published online July 15, 2002
Purpose : Henoch-Schonlein purpura(HSP) nephritis has been reported to vary from 25 to 50% among HSP patients and is a common cause of chronic glomerulonephritis in children. In our study, we evaluated the distribution and the association of the Insertion/Deletion(I/D) polymorphism of angiotensin converting enzyme(ACE) gene with clinical manifestations, particularly proteinuria in children with HSP nephritis, compared with that in...

A Prospective study was conducted to see the changes of immune system in recurrent gross hematuria (IgA nephropathy and non-IgA nephropathy) and HSP nephritis in children. Study patients consisted of 60 children with recurrent gross hematuria and Henoch-schdnlein purpura nephritis (8 IgA nephropathy, 24 non-IgA nephropathy and 28 HSP nephritis). The cellular immune indices (total T, T4, T8 cells and T4/T8 ratio) and humoral...

We experienced an interesting case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura associated with scarlet fever in a 10-year-old girl. Typical two rashes representing Henoch-Schönlein purpura and scarlet fever appeared simultaneously. Fine erythematous maculopapular eruptions (goose-skin appearance) and straw-berry tongue, characteristic of scarlet fever, were present above the pelvis with varing sized purpuras, characteristic of Henoch-Schönlein purpura, below the pelvis.

The authors experinced 94 cases of Henoch-Schönlein purpura in chilhood during the period form January, 1981 to Junly, 1987. The summary of the clinical and laboratory observations are as follows. 1) Male to female ratio was 1.4 : 1 and the age distribution of Henonoch-Schönlein purpura in showed a peak incidence between 3 to 10 years of age (79%). 2) In seasonal incidence, the...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1981;24(7):652-658.   Published online July 15, 1981
Serum immunoglobulin concenatrations were measured in 156 patients with various types of glomerulonephritis such as acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis, minimal lesion nephrotic syndrome and Henoch-Sch?lein purpura nephritis. 1) Serum IgG level was above normal mean in acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis, and normal range in Henoch-Scholein purpura nephritis. Serum IgG concentrations were significantly reduced in minimal lesion nephrotic syndrome. 2) Serum IgA concentrations...
