Henoch Schonlein purpura is a common vasculitis condition in children. It classically presents with purpura, abdominal pain and arthritis. The presentation usually follows a respiratory tract infection. It must be differentiated from varicella, renal failure, gastroenteritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. HSP can involve nearly every organ system. Most of the patients have at least one recurrence. Young patients (<3 y) usually have an improved prognosis. The prognosis is best for patients with minimal or no renal involvement at the onset of the illness.>
