Abstract

Henoch-Sch nlein purpura(HSP) frequently follows upper respiratory infection, and one of the causes of this disease is inferred to beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection, but the relationship is still unclear. Familial tendency of this disease is unclear, too. Also genetic relationship of this disease has been in a controversy yet. We experienced two cases of HSP in brother and sister at similar period, and report this case with review of related literatures.
