Case report on Henoch-Schonlein Purpura: A vasculitic disorder
Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) is a rare vasculitic disorder causing small vessels of the skin, alimentary canal, kidney, joints, and rarely lungs and central nervous system (CNS). HSP occurs decreasing with age. Here we report a case of a male child who presented with mild grade fever, leg pain, purpuric rashes, and non-pitting pedal edema. The head to foot examination shows restriction of movements presented in the lower limbs and palpable purpura presented in both upper and lower limbs associated with edema. Symptomatic therapy is enough for the treatment. Although he was successfully treated, mystery still veiled the etiology, pathophysiology, also line of management of this rare and enigmatic disease.
