ABSTRACT
The incidence of nephritis associated with Henoch-Sch nlein purpura varies, but glomerulonephritis consistently accounts for most of the associated morbidity and mortality. A very small number of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura develop rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. A three-year old male patient who showed acute nephritic nephrotic syndrome developed abdominal pain, arthralgia and multiple purpurae on lower extremities later. Peritoneal dialysis was done at the 6th hospital day and continued for 7 months. Renal biopsy disclosed crescentic glomerulonephritis (with 81% crescent formation) and methylprednisolone pulse therapy was done. These days, his general condition is good, but serum creatinine levels are 1.2-1.3 mg/dL. This case was reviewed briefly with the literatures.
