    J Am Acad Dermatol 2018 Jan;78(1):115-120
    Department of Dermatology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard University, Boston, Massachusetts. Electronic address:
    Background: Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a small vessel IgA-predominant vasculitis.

    Objective: To describe adult patients with HSP and determine if the distribution of skin lesions (ie, purpura above the waist or purpura below the waist only), is a predictor of significant renal involvement at the time of the skin biopsy and the months following.

    Biomarkers of IgA vasculitis nephritis in children.
    PLoS One 2017 30;12(11):e0188718. Epub 2017 Nov 30.
    INSERM 1149, Center of Research on Inflammation (CRI), Paris, France.
    Henoch-Schönlein purpura is a systemic vasculitis characterized by IgA deposits, which target the skin, joints, and kidneys, among other organs. In children, prognosis is often good but little is known about biomarkers of pediatric nephritis. We hypothesized that biological markers, including cytokines, immunoglobulins, IgA-immune complexes, IgA glycosylation and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), may discriminate IgA vasculitis (IgAV) pediatric patients with renal involvement from those without renal involvement.

    Department of Ultrasound, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, 157 Xiwu Road, Xincheng District, Xi'an, Shaanxi, 710004, People's Republic of China.
    Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common form of systemic small-vessel vasculitis in children, and HSP nephritis (HSPN) is a major complication of HSP and is the primary cause of morbidity and mortality. Previous studies have suggested that inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) may play an important role in the pathogenesis of HSP. In this study, we performed a detailed analysis to investigate the potential association between iNOS polymorphisms and the risk of HSP and the tendency for children with HSP to develop HSPN in a Chinese Han population.

    Department of Children and Adolescents, Oulu University Hospital, Oulu, Finland.
    Background: Histological findings from primary kidney biopsies were correlated with patient outcomes in a national cohort of paediatric Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSN) patients.

    Methods: Primary kidney biopsies from 53 HSN patients were re-evaluated using the ISKDC (International Study of Kidney Disease in Children) classification and a modified semiquantitative classification (SQC) that scores renal findings and also takes into account activity, chronicity and tubulointerstitial indices. The ISKDC and SQC classifications were evaluated comparatively in four outcome groups: no signs of renal disease (outcome A, n = 27), minor urinary abnormalities (outcome B, n = 18), active renal disease (outcome C, n = 3) and renal insufficiency, end-stage renal disease or succumbed due to HSN (outcome D, n = 5).

    Department of Rheumatology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
    BACKGROUND Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), a small vessel vasculitis mediated by deposition of immune-complexes containing IgA in the skin, gut, and glomeruli, often presents with abdominal pain, purpuric rash in the lower extremities and buttocks, joint pain, and hematuria. The disease most commonly targets children but can affect adults who tend to have a worse prognosis. CASE REPORT We discuss a case of HSP in an elderly Chinese male who presented with severe proximal bowel inflammation, vasculitic rash, and proteinuria; he was found to have positive stool rotavirus and giardia.
