Abstract

Characteristic skin lesions of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura consist of small hemorrhagic macules, papules, palpable purpura, or urticarial lesions that appear in a symmetric distribution over the buttocks and extensor surfaces of the extremities. In rare cases, some lesions may become nodular, bullous, and ulcerative, especially in severe cases of leukocytoclastic vasculitis. We report two cases of Henoch-Sch nlein purpura presenting as bullous lesions, which should be differentiated from other bullous diseases such as bullous pemphigoid and impetigo.
