henoch-Schoenlein purpura (HSP) is predominantly a disease of children characterized by non thrombocytopenic purpuric rash, abdominal pain, arthritis and nephritis due to vasculities of small blood vessels. These characterisitic clinical manifestations, however, may appear in any sequence making the diagnosis difficult. HSP is also known as anaphylactoid and rheumatoid purpura; leukocytoclasic vasculties and allergic vasculitis.
