BACKGROUND The frequency and ethnic variation of Henoch-Schönlein purpura, Kawasaki disease, and rarer vasculitides during childhood are not well characterised. Our aim was to ascertain the incidence and ethnic distribution of these conditions in children resident in a region of the UK with a diverse ethnic mix. METHODS 1.1 million children younger than age 17 years live in the West Midlands. Between Sept 1, 1996, and Aug 31, 1999, we surveyed this population with monthly questionnaires sent… Expand
The clinical spectrum of Henoch–Schönlein purpura in children: a single-center study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patients suffering intussusception, relapse, and serious GIS involvement or requiring hospitalization and steroid treatment had tendency to present with severe renal involvement and should be followed up carefully for not overlooking renal involvement of HSP. Expand
Henoch–Schönlein purpura in children: an epidemiological study among Dutch paediatricians on incidence and diagnostic criteria
TLDR
Considering the recent (2006) EULAR/PReS endorsed consensus criteria for the classification of childhood vasculitides, HSP should have been diagnosed in only 160 of the 179 patients of this study. Expand
Age of onset as a risk factor of renal involvement in Henoch-Schönlein purpura
TLDR
Renal involvement in children with HSP is more common in age group 11 to 15 years old than abdominal pain, while Gastrointestinal manifestations tend to manifest in patients less than 5 years old, while renal involvement tend to Manifest in ageGroup 11-15 years old. Expand
Henoch-Schönlein Purpura: A Long-Term Prospective Study in Greek Children
TLDR
Despite common relapses,Henoch-Schönlein purpura is benign in the long term even if severe renal involvement can occur during its active period, with arthritis being less common in the relapsed episodes. Expand
MEFV gene variants in children with Henoch-Schönlein purpura and association with clinical manifestations: a single-center Mediterranean experience
TLDR
MEFV variants in exon 10 may affect clinical presentation of HSP in populations where FMF is common, and physicians should be aware of FMF possibility in children with intussusception and lower hemoglobin, higher serum IgA, leukocyte, and platelet count. Expand
Kawasaki disease and Henoch Schonlein purpura: changing trends at a tertiary care hospital in north India (1993–2008)
TLDR
Both the diseases exhibited a comparable seasonal trend in the distribution with a noticeable peak being discernible in the months of October and November, and KD has shown a rising trend over the recent years in the hospital. Expand
