ABSTRACT

We describe the case of a 10-year-old girl admitted to a paediatric department with the clinical diagnosis of Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP). Symptoms on admission included a petechial rash on the lower limbs, abdominal pain, vomiting and loose motions with mucus. Abdominal pain and sigmoidoscopy suggested edematous bowel loops in left illiac fossa. The severity of cardiac, gastrointestinal, renal and skin involvement made the initial diagnosis of HSP.

Keywords:

Henoch-Schonlein purpura, Paediatric, Petechial rash.
