Özet

The common vasculitides of childhood are more self-limited than those in adults. Clinical evidence suggests that infectious agents may have a significant role in the aetiology of these diseases although exact pathogenic mechanisms are not known. One of the most frequent of such diseases in childhood is Henoch-Schonlein purpura. The controversies regarding the management of gastrointestinal and renal disease and suggested treatments are reviewed.
