Hypergammaglobulinemic purpura is a rare syndrome characterized by long-standing recurrent purpura of the lower limbs, polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate and high titer rheumatoid factor positivity. The syndrome can occur isolated or in association with a systemic disease. Few cases have been described in childhood. We report two cases together with a review of the paediatric literature.
