    Henoch Schönlein Purpura Nephritis Associated with Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) Therapy.
    Intern Med 2017 1;56(5):541-544. Epub 2017 Mar 1.
    Department of Nephrology, Showa General Hospital, Japan.
    Henoch Schönlein purpura (HSP), also known as IgA vasculitis (IgAV), is a systemic small-vessel vasculitis that predominantly affects adolescents and is rare in adults. In many cases, the onset of HSP has been causally linked to an infectious disease. We encountered a case of HSP with severe renal involvement diagnosed by renal biopsy following bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) therapy for bladder cancer. Read More

    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.

    [IgA vasculitis (Henoch-Schönlein purpura)].
    Wiad Lek 2016;69(5):711-713
    Katedra i Klinika Nefrologii, Dializoterapii i Chorób Wewnętrznych WUM, Warszawa, Polska.
    IgA vasculitis (Schönlein-Henoch purpura) is a systemic inflammation of the small vessels associated with the deposition of IgA antibodies in the vascular wall. Typical clinical symptoms are: skin lesions (purpura), joint pain, abdominal discomfort and renal disorder (most common haematuria/proteinuria). The disease affects usually the pediatric population; in those patients its course is benign and usually not associated with permanent complications. Read More

    Staphylococcus Infection-Associated GN - Spectrum of IgA Staining and Prevalence of ANCA in a Single-Center Cohort.
    Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 2017 Jan 7;12(1):39-49. Epub 2016 Nov 7.
    Department of Pathology, and.
    Background And Objectives: Staphylococcus infection-associated GN (SAGN) is a well recognized disease entity, particularly because of the frequent IgA-dominant glomerular immunoglobulin staining on kidney biopsy. Biopsy features can resemble two other disease entities - primary IgA nephropathy and Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis - posing a diagnostic pitfall. This is clinically relevant because of the crucial difference in the therapeutic approach. Read More

    Butsabong Lerkvaleekul, Soamarat Vilaiyuk, Division of Rheumatology, Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok 10400, Thailand.
    Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is generally a self-limited vasculitis disease and has a good prognosis. We report a 4-year-old Thai boy who presented with palpable purpura, abdominal colicky pain, seizure, and eventually developed intestinal ischemia and perforation despite adequate treatment, including corticosteroid and intravenous immunoglobulin therapy. Imaging modalities, including ultrasonography and contrast-enhanced computed tomography, could not detect intestinal ischemia prior to perforation. Read More

    No impairment of pulmonary function in children with Henoch-Schonlein purpura after 4-year follow-up.
    Clin Rheumatol 2016 Nov 27;35(11):2847-2850. Epub 2016 Jul 27.
    Department of Sleep Medicine and Metabolic Disorders, Medical University of Lodz, Mazowiecka 6/8, 92-215, Lodz, Poland.
    Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a generalized form of IgA-mediated vasculitis that usually spares pulmonary circulation. Nevertheless, it is conceivable that subclinical changes at the HSP onset may lead to lung impairment in the long term. Therefore, we decided to follow a group of HSP patients for 4 years to monitor changes in pulmonary function. Read More

    Immunoglobulin A Vasculitis Complicated with Clostridium difficile Infection: a Rare Case Report and Brief Review of the Literature.
    J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2016 Jun;25(2):235-8
    Gr. T. Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy;St. Spiridon Emergency Hospital, Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Iasi, Romania.
    Immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis, formerly called Henoch-Schönlein purpura, is a leukocytoclastic type of vasculitis affecting small vessels with a deposition of immune IgA complexes, clinically characterized by the classic tetrad of nonthrombocytopenic palpable purpura, arthralgia (or arthritis), and gastrointestinal and renal involvement. Although the cause of the disease remains unknown, immune complexes of IgA and unidentified antigens seem to play a central pathogenic role. The diagnosis is easily established in the presence of purpura, but may be challenging in its absence, especially when colicky abdominal pain precedes the cutaneous lesions. Read More

    Pediatr Emerg Care 2016 Jun;32(6):384-5
    From the *Summerville Pediatric Emergency Department, Summerville and †Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine,Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.
    Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) may present in a variety of ways, most commonly with joint pain or the distinctive palpable purpura. Genitourinary manifestations of HSP are less common and may precede the classic signs and symptoms of HSP, making the diagnosis difficult. We report a case of a 19-month-old boy with penile and scrotal erythema and swelling at presentation who was later diagnosed with HSP. Read More

    Department of Pediatrics Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, 11100 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44106.
    Although kidney disease is much less common in children than in adults, clinicians must remain alert for the renal conditions that occur in this population because prompt diagnosis and management are essential. Acute postinfectious glomerulonephritis occurs as an uncommon sequela of streptococcal and other infections. Management is focused on providing supportive measures, including management of fluid-electrolyte imbalance and hypertension, until the patient recovers. Read More

    Anatomy and Histopathology, Medical Biosciences Department, University of the Western Cape, Cape Town; Mbeya Referral Hospital, Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Mbeya, Tanzania.
    Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (APD) is a rare autoimmune response to raised endogenous progesterone levels that occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Cutaneous, mucosal lesions and other systemic manifestations develop cyclically during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle when progesterone levels are elevated. APD symptoms usually start 3 - 10 days before menstruation and resolve 1 - 2 days after menstruation ceases. Read More

    Genetic Diagnosis Center, The First Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, China.
    Background: Henoch-Schoenlein purpura is the one of most common types of systemic vasculitis that involves impaired renal function and Henoch-Schoenlein purpura nephritis (HSPN). The diagnosis of this condition is largely based on immunohistologic detection of immunoglobulin A1-containing immune complex in the glomerular deposits of mesangium. Despite clinical advances, the etiopathogenesis of HSPN is still largely unknown. Read More

    Association between IL17A and IL17F polymorphisms and risk of Henoch-Schonlein purpura in Chinese children.
    Rheumatol Int 2016 Jun 28;36(6):829-35. Epub 2016 Mar 28.
    Department of Clinical Laboratory, Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, 310003, Zhejiang, People's Republic of China.
    Previous studies suggested that interleukin-17 and Th17 cell play an important role in the pathogenesis of childhood Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP). The purpose of our study is to elucidate whether the IL17A and IL17F gene polymorphisms are susceptibility genes for the development of HSP in Chinese children. A total of 148 HSP patients and 202 controls were enrolled for analyzing the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) of IL17A (rs2275913, rs8193037 and rs3819025) and IL17F (rs763780 and rs9463772).
