• purpura
  • For example, if the vasculitis is a manifestation of Henoch-Schönlein purpura, individuals may also experience abdominal pain or blood in the urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • In cases where a cause can be determined, medications and infectious pathogens are most common in adults, while IgA vasculitis (Henoch-Schönlein purpura) frequently affects children. (wikipedia.org)
  • Arthritis: Pain or swelling (60%), often initially diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis Skin: nodules on the elbow, purpura, various others (see cutaneous vasculitis) Nervous system: occasionally sensory neuropathy (10%) and rarely mononeuritis multiplex Heart, gastrointestinal tract, brain, other organs: rarely affected.

  • Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), also known as IgA vasculitis, anaphylactoid purpura, purpura rheumatica, and Schönlein-Henoch purpura, is a disease of the skin, mucous membranes, and sometimes other organs that most commonly affects children. (wikipedia.org)
  • Henoch-Schönlein purpura is a small-vessel vasculitis in which complexes of immunoglobulin A (IgA) and complement component 3 (C3) are deposited on arterioles, capillaries, and venules. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • Recently, an original study, combining the analysis of more than 100 items used to describe patients' characteristics in a large sample of vasculitides with a computer simulation technique designed to test the potential diagnostic utility of the various criteria, proposed a set of eight positively or negatively discriminating items to be used as a screening tool for diagnosis in patients suspected of systemic vasculitis.

  • Neurologic
  • Blau syndrome Chronic infantile neurologic cutaneous and articular syndrome Familial cold urticaria (familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome) Familial Mediterranean fever Hyper-IgD syndrome Majeed syndrome Muckle-Wells syndrome TNF receptor associated periodic syndrome (familial Hibernian fever, TRAPS, tumor necrosis factor receptor associated periodic syndrome) Chronic blistering cutaneous conditions have a prolonged course and present with vesicles and bullae.

  • disease
  • The disease can be confined to the skin (cutaneous) or it can affect many different organs of the body such as the kidneys, central nervous system, heart, gastrointestinal tract, and lungs. (aocd.org)
  • Systemic involvement is generally associated with a more severe disease course while cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis is usually self-limited and has a better prognosis. (aocd.org)
