ABSTRACT This is a case of a young girl with palpable purpura on the legs and buttocks who was seen using telecommunication technology. Store-and-forward teledermatology increases overall access to dermatology care by sending protected medical information electronically to off-site medical providers (Roman & Jacob, 2014). The following case of palpable purpura is presented in the standardized teledermatological reader format.
