Abstract

Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) may present in a variety of ways, most commonly with joint pain or the distinctive palpable purpura. Genitourinary manifestations of HSP are less common and may precede the classic signs and symptoms of HSP, making the diagnosis difficult. We report a case of a 19-month-old boy with penile and scrotal erythema and swelling at presentation who was later diagnosed with HSP.
