AbstractA 12 year old girl developed clusters of urticarial and palpable purpuric lesions on the extremities associated with abdominal pain, polyarthraloa and microscopic hematuria. A throat swab culture yielded streptococci and the ASO tire in her blood was raised. The palpable purpuric lesions on her extremities were, observed to evolve gradually into scaly papules of acute, guttate psoriasis. It seems possible that the streptococcal throat infection triggered both Henoch-Schonlein purpura and acute in this patient.
