Abstract

Schönlein-Henoch purpura developed in two children in association with hepatitis B virus infection. The first child, an 8-year-old boy, first had a clinical picture of Schönlein-Henoch purpura and then was found to have HBV-related chronic persistent hepatitis. In the second child, a 6-year-old girl, characteristic skin lesions, arthralgia, and proteinuria developed during acute hepatitis B. Immunofluorescence demonstrated IgA deposition in the renal glomeruli of the first patient. We suggest that evidence of HBV infection should be sought in patients with Schönlein-Henoch purpura.
