"Schonlein henoch purpura"

Borja Croche Santander, Elena Campos, Adela Sánchez, Laura Marcos, Isabel Díaz, Cristóbal Toro
Schonlein-Henoch purpura accounts for the majority of cases of systemic vasculitis in children. Classical presentation is characterized by palpable purpura, glomerulonephritis, arthralgias and abdominal pain. Although genitourinary manifestations, in form of testicular and scrotal involvement, have been widely described, penile involvement remains an extremely rare complication. We report a case of a 6-year-old boy who presented with purpuric rash on the glans, prepuce and penile shaft, with painful edema in the penile region...

BACKGROUND: Neutrophil elastase plays an important role in skin inflammation induced by neutrophil infiltration. Elafin is an inducible elastase inhibitor expressed by keratinocytes, and is known to be involved in pathogenesis of neutrophilic skin disorders such as psoriasis. METHODS: Immunohistochemical studies of elafin expression in the cases of vasculitis were performed. Induction of elafin expression in cultured vascular cells and its effect on neutrophil migration were studied in vitro...

BACKGROUND: The primary vasculitides are rare conditions in childhood. The most common disease subtypes are Schönlein-Henoch purpura and Kawasaki's syndrome, which frequently have a self-limiting course. In the majority of vasculitides, the etiology remains unknown. Environmental exposure, including infections, is suspected to trigger an autoinflammatory response in predisposed individuals. GOAL: The aim of this review is to present the various aspects of childhood vasculitis...

This is a case report of acute haemorrhagic oedema of infancy. An 11-month-old boy with a prolonged relapsing course within three weeks with fever and an increase in CRP necessitating antibiotic treatment. This disease is a leukocytoclastic vasculitis sharing features with Schönlein-Henoch purpura, but with a more benign self-limiting course with minimal risk of organ involvement. The characteristic distribution and appearance of the cutaneous symptoms often allows a clinical diagnosis of the condition.

We report a case of a 63 year old woman with progressive small red spots that can not be diminished with pressure. They appeared on the feet first and spread out to the legs, trunk and arms. This was accompanied with non-bloody diarrhoea and the laboratory diagnostics showed minor impairment of the kidney. The biopsy of the skin showed deposits of immunoglobulin A and C3 complement in the stratum papillare of the small vessels and a necrosis of the wall, which made the diagnosis of the Schönlein-Henoch purpura clear...

Acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy (AHEI) is a cutaneous vasculitis seen in children. Many consider it to be a clinical variant of Schönlein-Henoch purpura, but others regard it as a separate entity because of its benign nature, age of onset, lack of visceral involvement, and frequent absence of vascular immunoglobulin A deposition. It is clinically characterized by large "cockade" or rosette-shaped, annular, purpuric lesions involving the face and extremities; erythematous edema; and mild fever. It seems to appear secondary to a history of viral or bacterial infection, course of antibiotics, or vaccination...

Twenty patients with collagen diseases complicated with Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) were retrospectively examined in reference to the criteria for its protective therapy provided by the Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare. The breakdown of 20 patients was rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in 5 cases, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in 5, dermatomyositis (DM) in 2, systemic scleroderma (SSc) in 1, mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) in 1, Sjögren syndrome (SjS) in 1, polyarteritis nodosa (PN) in 3, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) in 1, Schönlein-Henoch purpura in 1...

Schönlein-Henoch purpura (SHP) is a systemic vasculitis, primarily involving the skin, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, joints, and kidneys. A wide variety of different conditions may be implicated in the pathogenesis of SHP. We report a 33-year-old man who presented with SHP accompanied by gastric Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection. The GI manifestations and purpuric rashes were dramatically resolved after Hp eradication therapy. To date, very few publications have focused on the possible pathogenetic relationship between Hp infection and SHP...

BACKGROUND: Alopecia areata (AA) is an immune-mediated form of hair loss that occurs in all ethnic groups, ages, and both sexes. Helicobacter pylori has been associated with certain extra-digestive dermatological conditions, including chronic urticaria, rosacea, Schönlein-Henoch purpura, Sweet syndrome, systemic sclerosis, and atopic dermatitis. OBJECTIVE: The causal relation between alopecia areata and H. pylori is discussed. We have screened for the presence of H...

INTRODUCTION: Association between Schönlein-Henoch purpura and neoplasm can suggest the responsibility of tumour antigens in the genesis of the vasculitis. We report a new case of squamous cell carcinoma associated with Schönlein-Henoch purpura and we discuss the reality of this association. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 50-year-old man who presents Schönlein-Henoch purpura with a purpura of lower limbs, joint involvement, gastrointestinal lesions and IgA renal mesangial deposits...

Schönlein-Henoch purpura is a small vessel disease that affects mainly skin and kidney, although several gastrointestinal symptoms may occur including abdominal pain, intussusception, perforation or bleeding. Massive lower gastrointestinal haemorrhage is rare and even more as the main symptom of the disease. We present a case of a 2-year-old boy with Schönlein-Henoch purpura who developed a massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding requiring blood transfusion. In this patient both Schönlein-Henoch purpura and gastrointestinal haemorrhage were successfully treated with intravenous methylprednisolone, avoiding surgical intervention...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Schönlein-Henoch purpura (SHP) is a systemic condition characterized by purpura associated with leukocytoclastic vasculitis. SHP diagnosis is more difficult in infrequent cases where gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms precede purpura. This report examines 11 cases of SHP at our hospital with specific regard to the incidences and details of GI symptoms. METHODS: The clinical manifestations and endoscopic findings were investigated for their utility in SHP diagnosis...

Schönlein-Henoch purpura is a systemic vasculitis characterised by purpura, joints and gastrointestinal involvement and glomerulonephritis. Organs injuries are associated with the deposition of immune complexes containing IgA in the wall of small vessels. This disease rarely affects adults. On the basis of the case of 50 years old man clinical presentation, prognosis and treatment are presented.

Multiple mechanisms contribute to the pathogenesis of systemic vasculitides: 1. vasculitides resulting from the deposition of circulating immune complexes, comprising polyarteritis nodosa associated with hepatitis B virus infection, cryoglobulinemia associated systemic with vasculitides, mainly the consequence of hepatitis C virus infection, and Schonlein Henoch purpura, which results from the deposition in the mesangium and vessels of IgA forming complexes; 2. vasculitides associated with anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibodies (ANCA), comprising Wegener's granulomatosis associated with anti-proteinase 3 ANCA, and microscopic polyangiitis and Churg-Strauss syndrome, associated with anti-myeloperoxydase ANCA...

Vasculitides are a group of diseases characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels and can affect any type of blood vessel in the body. Schönlein-Henoch purpura is a type of vasculitis secondary to hypersensitivity that affects the small blood vessels. Due to the rarity of this association, we present the case of a male patient with cutaneous purpura and intestinal involvement.

We report a case of a 69-year-old man with Schönlein-Henoch purpura who developed diffuse pulmonary hemorrhage. He complained of dyspnea and hemoptysis while he was treated with steroids for gastroenteropathy associated with Schönlein-Henoch purpura. The drop in his hemoglobin levels and diffuse ground-glass opacity at all levels of the lung fields on chest computed tomography were a significant clue to diagnosis. Despite pulse therapy, no clinical improvement of the lung was achieved, and he died on the 36th day after the admission...
