Abstract
In the course of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura, diverse gastrointestinal manifestations are common. Two cases of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura complicated by upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding is herein reported. For both patients, peculiar endoscopic pictures revealed, severe ulcerations and frank bleeding. A biopsy showed typical leukocytoclastic vasculitis which were the same as with the skin biopsy. The endoscopic finding was determined not to be pathognomonic, but instead characteristic of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura. Therefore, an endoscopy can be useful in the diagnosis of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura, especially for those patients without a typical skin rash. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 19: 803∼807, 1999)
Key Words: Henoch-Sch nlein purpura, Endoscopy, Gastrointestinal bleeding
