Vascular Purpura Definition

Definition

Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is an inflammation of the blood vessels in the skin and other body organs. Skin involvement often results in a rash, typically occurring on the buttocks and legs. The rash often resembles bruising or bleeding into the skin, a condition referred to as “purpura.”

People of all ages may develop HSP, but it is most common in children.
