Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a small vessel vasculitis with IgA dominant immune complex deposition. It is characterized by a triad of palpable purpura (without thrombocytopenia), abdominal pain and arthritis. Uveitis is rarely associated with HSP with only 3 cases reported in literature. All these cases were in adult population and were associated with nephritis. However, this association is not reported in paediatric age group. We are reporting a case of an 11-year-old child of recurrent HSP with uveitis.
