We report on a three-year-old boy with Henoch-Schönlein purpura developing an esophageal stenosis during severe clinical course of this disease. There are to date no reports on the development of such a complication. The possible pathogenesis in relation to stricture formation of ileum and ureter in Henoch-Schönlein's purpura is discussed.
