Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) - Diagnosis

The doctor will examine your child and make a diagnosis based on your child’s signs and symptoms.

What laboratory and other tests are useful?

  • Urine analysis is performed during the disease to detect kidney involvement. Microscopic blood in urine is common and resolves with time.
  • Kidney biopsy is performed only for significant kidney disease.
  • Ultrasound may be recommended to rule out other causes of abdominal pain and to check for possible complications, such as intussusception.
