Acute pancreatitis: a rare presenting feature of Henoch Schonlein purpura.

Pancreatitis is a rare manifestation of Henoch Schonlein purpura (HSP). Herein we report a 3-year-old girl presented with acute pancreatitis that developed characteristic rash for HSP at the fifth day of clinical onset. Abdominal pain which is the most frequent sign of gastrointestinal involvement can be also explained by acute pancreatitis. Although clinical features of pancreatitis may be encountered after the onset of the typical rash, pancreatitis can also occur as a presenting feature. This rare presentation of HSP is discussed to emphasise the clinical features, presentation and outcome of pancreatic involvement.
