The most common presenting complaint for children with HSP is a purpuric rash on the lower extremities. Many other organ systems beyond the skin can be involved for children with HSP. We report a case of a 7-year-old girl with HSP who presented with status epilepticus and onset of rash 2 weeks after her initial symptoms.
