CLAROS ARISPE, Cinthia  y  BEJARANO FORQUERAS, Haldrin Antonio. Schönlein-Henoch púrpura in pediatric patients, a case purpose. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.1, pp. 47-48. ISSN 1012-2966.

Schonlein-Henoch Purpura is a leukocytoclastic vasculitis, most common in children which affects small vessels; its etiology remains unknown, it is a multisystemical disease that affects skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. The clinical case is presented in a 11 years old female children, with a palpable purpura associated to abdominal pain, in the moment of the hospitalization, having presented two weeks before a history of upper respiratory tract infection that evolved favorably; with a corticosteroid administration, the Purpura this improved clinically and the abdominal pain decreased, instead of increasing, in which case it was thought that it may be complicated with a surgical process as an intestinal instussusception.

Palabras clave : púrpura Schoenlein-Henoch; vasculitis; case reports; pediatrics.
