Kidney disease in Henoch-Schonlein Purpura may be predicted by:
- A. Limited skin involvement
- B. Spread of purpura to the upper trunk
- C. Synovial involvement
- D. Bullous lesions
- E. Facial edema
Henoch-Schonlein Purpura occurs mostly in children. There is an antecedent URI in 75% of cases. HSP involves the skin, synovia, GI tract, and kidneys. Long-term morbidity results from renal disease, which is predicted by the spread of purpura to the upper trunk. Skin lesions of
adults show blisters and necrosis.
