Abstract

We describe two children with clinical and laboratory features of hypocomplementemic urticarial vasculitis syndrome. Both patients had severe, life-threatening manifestations: rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (patient 1) and pulmonary hemorrhage (patient 2). We conclude that this syndrome may be a potentially severe multisystem disease.
