BACKGROUND: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a condition characterized by seizures, altered consciousness, visual disturbances, and headache. Characteristic findings on neuroimaging include cerebral edema, typically involving the parieto-occipital white matter. PRES has been associated with hypertension, autoimmune disease, and Henoch-Schölein purpura (HSP), but few cases have been reported, and fewer cases of PRES have been reported in children. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with blindness and semi-consciousness...

Most emergencies in dermatology comprise a variety of entities with a usually benign course. However, vasculopathies and vasculitis are not common, but they could represent respectively 1.9% and 4.4% of these entities according to some studies of Emergency Dermatology Department. They become an important disease which has to be identified early to establish appropriate management and treatment. Some of them are well known, such as the leukocitoclastic vasculitis, Schölein-Henoch, panarteritis nodosa, antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody associated vasculitis, giant cell arteritis, cryoglobulinemic vasculitis and antiphospholipid syndrome...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is growing medical concern worldwide. There are many types of glomerulonephritis which are associated with HIV infection. We report a case of a 53-year-old Korean man with an HIV infection, who was developed nephritic range proteinuria and purpura with elevated IgA level rasing a possibility of Henoch-Schölein Purpura (H-S purpura). However, renal biopsy showed "lupus-like feature" glomerulonephritis without clinical or serologic evidence of systemic lupus erythematosus...

UNLABELLED: Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common vasculitis in children and is characterized by cutaneous purpura, arthritis, abdominal pain and nephritis. We report a case involving a 3-year-old girl with HSP who displayed rapidly evolving haemorrhagic bullae from primary purpuric lesions during systemic corticosteroid therapy. CONCLUSION: The bullae disappeared within 7 days of systemic corticosteroid therapy, although some scarring of the skin occurred...

BACKGROUND: We describe here a case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) that occurred 10 days after administration of the meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine and came to the attention of a Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) investigator (but did not occur in the VSD cohort). Periodic case reports have linked vaccines to HSP. OBJECTIVE: To better understand the potential risk for HSP after immunization with the meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We studied the VSD cohort to estimate the 42-day postvaccination incidence rate of HSP in the VSD population 16 to 20 years of age...

We report a 11-year-old girl who had abdominal pain, hematemesis and melena. On admission, endoscopy revealed multiple duodenal ulcers and abdominal computed tomography showed dilatation and wall thickness of the jejunum. Because she showed purpura on the lower extremities and a decreased serum level of the XIII factor, she was diagnosed as having Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). On the clinical course, she had acute pancreatitis. Following administration of XIII factor, nafamostal mesilate and predonisolone, the abdominal pain disappeared...

Henoch-Schölein purpura is usually a disease of children presenting with arthralgia, abdominal pain, renal involvement, and palpable purpura. Viral and bacterial infections may have a role in its etiology. We present a 32-year-old male patient with recurrent Henoch-Schölein purpura in association with a chronic hepatitis B infection of ten years duration. The patient had received lamuvidine and interferon-alpha for the treatment of hepatitis B infection for a year. The skin lesions disappeared with the treatment of the hepatitis B infection...

Distinguishing in febrile children between harmless rashes and those, which require specific action, is a common problem in pediatric primary care. Major exanthematous diseases necessitating emergency hospitalization include invasive meningococcal disease and rarely gram-negative septicaemia caused by other pathogens, staphylococcal and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, endocarditis, fever and rash in travellers returning from tropical countries and drug hypersensitivity syndrome. Therapeutic intervention is also necessary in patients with scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, varicella in postpuberal and immunocompromised individuals, in Kawasaki's disease, in Still's disease and in other non-infectious, inflammatory diseases (e...

BACKGROUND: To better understand the mechanisms of glomerular epithelial cell (GEC) injuries in various diseases, we compared GEC excreted during chemotherapy (antineoplastic drugs) and GEC excreted in renal diseases. METHODS: For 19 patients undergoing chemotherapy (85 courses), 69 patients with IgA nephropathy and 16 patients with Henoch-Schölein purpura nephritis, the number of excreted GEC and GEC casts were counted by an immunofluorescent study. The morphological features of GEC were also studied in an immunofluorescent study combined with Hoechst stain...

Acute pediatric abdomen is a very common clinical problem. Clinical and laboratory findings, however, are nonspecific or confusing in many instances. This review article focuses on strategy in diagnosing acute pediatric abdomen. A variety of diseases such as appendicitis, gastroenteritis, mesenteric adenitis, intestinal intussusception, Henoch-Schölein purpura, Crohn's disease, Meckel's diverticulitis, duodenal ulcer, congenital biliary dilatation, ovarian torsion, and anomaly of the internal genitalia are discussed in this article...

The joint pain, inflammation, and painful cutaneous edema of Henoch-Schölein purpura (HSP) are effectively treated with analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, and corticosteroids, but the optimal management of HSP-associated gastrointestinal and renal involvement has not yet been determined. The results of mostly anecdotal and uncontrolled studies favor a short course of oral corticosteroids for severe abdominal pain and aggressive immunosuppressive therapy for patients with progressive HSP nephritis...

A 86 year-old woman was re-admitted because of purpura of her upper and lower extremities, abdominal pain and blood stools. Seven weeks previously, she underwent a gastrectomy for gastric cancer. After re-admission, proteinuria and hematuria were noted, and the serum creatinine level increased. Two months, after the onset of purpura, she died of pneumonia. On autopsy examination, fibrinoid vasculitis of acute inflammatory stage (II) at small arteries and/or arterioles in the bladder, rectum, lungs, spleen and crescentic glomerulonephritis without immune deposits were observed...

The authors report three cases of Scholein-Henoch's purpura in adults which were characterized by atypical severity of the digestive signs which led to laparotomy. In one case, the digestive signs preceded the onset of the cutaneous purpura, which made the diagnosis difficult. The digestive impact was confirmed endoscopically (petechia, ulceration, ulcerated stenosis) in two of the three patients. Damage of the small intestine predominated, as in the literature, but only one patient required resection of the intestine...

Human parvovirus B19 (B19) has been shown to be the cause of erthema infectiousum (EI). Recently the various clinical manifestations with B19 infection are coming to light. The relationship between B19 and anaphylactoid purpura (Schölein-Henoch purpura: SHP) was investigated in a retrospective study. There were sixteen patients (male 9, female 7, average age 6.0 +/- 1.7) who were diagnosed as SHP. Serum specimens were used in the present study. Specific IgM and IgG were assayed by enzyme immunoassay, B19 DNA was assayed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)...

Henoch-Schönlein's purpura is a systemic vasculitis involving mainly skin, joints, intestine and kidney. We report on 2 patients who presented with clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of testicular torsion. In 1 case purpuric areas after leg cast removal indicated a diagnosis of Henoch-Schölein's purpura. Surgical exploration of the other case revealed congestion of the hydatid of Morgagni, which was followed by typical systemic manifestations of Henoch-Schönlein's purpura. These and another case indicate that orchitis accompanying Henoch-Schönlein's purpura may mimic testicular torsion...

An adult male patient with Henoch-Schônlein purpura and severe intestinal involvement is reported. Henoch-Schönlein purpura was documented by microscopic and immunofluorescent studies of the skin and kidney. At duodenojejunoscopy there were multiple ulcerations and thickening of mucosal folds. Microscopic and immunofluorescent studies of duodenum and proximal jejunum showed submucosal vasculitis and granular deposits of immunoglobulin A and complement components (C3) in the vessel walls, similar to those observed in the skin and kidney...
