Henochs purpura --> Henoch-Schonlein purpura

(Science: dermatology) this relatively rare disorder is characterised by skin purpura, joint pains, abdominal pain and renal disease (glomerulonephritis).

Although Henoch-Schonlein purpura or anaphylactoid purpura, is thought to be a immune complex mediated disease, its exact cause is unknown. Its typical benign coarse can, however, include renal failure.
