Henoch-Schonlein Purfrura is a generalized small vessel vasculitis of hypersensitivity type characterized primarily by a purpuric skin lesion, renal involvementwith hematuria and proteinuria, arthralgia, and colicky abdominal pain. A possible neurologic involvement was recognized in 1914 by Osler. A case of a 7 1/2-year-old male patient with Henoch-Schonlein purpura developed neurologic manifestations including seizure and mental status change. The cranial CT demonstrated a occipital hemorrhage of right side and cerebral edema with contrast enhancing scattered dilated vessels. The EEGchanges were slow wave activities in acute stage. The follow-up EEG shows that the slow wave activities were more improved than previous and that multiple spike waves were recorded at bothfronto-temporo-parietal areas with phase reversals. The vasculitis of HenochSch6nlein purpura can involve the nervous system.
