ABSTRACT

Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP) is the most common vasculitis in childhood and is characterized by a systemic leukocytoclastic angiitis involving the skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract and, less frequently, small-diameter renal vessels. The triggering agents of Henoch-Schönlein purpura are generally considered to be infectious agents, drugs, insect bites, and food. Here, we report what is to the best of our knowledge only the first case of induced HSP by methylphenidate.

Keywords: Henoch-Schönlein Purpura, vasculitis, methylphenidate
