SERVIOLI, Luisa Fernanda. Adult IgA vasculitis. Clinical case. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2023, vol.8, n.3, pp.77-83.  Epub Dec 01, 2023. ISSN 2393-6797.

The IgA vasculitis is the most common vasculitis in Pediatrics. It can also present in adults but with a different clinical course and a worse prognosis, including the possibility of progression to end stage renal disease. The natural history of the disease and its nephritis have been scarcely studied in adults. There is no universal agreement in diagnostic criteria and the treatment is controversial given the absence of controlled randomized trials. We report the case of a patient who presented clinically with a petechial purpuric rash, microhematuria, proteinuria and rapid progression to renal failure that was diagnosed with IgA vasculitis in adult.

Keywords : vasculitis por IgA; glomerulonefritis; purpura de Schonlein Henoch; vasculitis por inmunocomplejos; purpura vascular.
