Description
Immunoglobulin A vasculitis (IgAV), formerly known as Henoch-Schönlein purpura, primarily occurs during childhood between the ages of 3 and 15 years and is the most common form of systemic vasculitis in children ; its occurrence in adults has been rarely reported. Such low incidence could be attributable to either under-diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Thus, not only pediatricians but also physicians should be able to diagnose IgAV accurately to manage the patients appropriately and avoid its associated complications. In addition, treatment of adult onset IgAV with renal involvement has not been fully established yet. We describe here a case of adult onset IgAV complicated by proteinuria and pharyngitis, which was cured by no specific treatment.
