Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is an immunologically mediated systemic vasculitis of small blood vessels that primarily involves the skin, gastrointestinal tract, joints and kidneys. HSP is a common vasculitic syndrome in children who, in most cases, achieve complete recovery. Pulmonary hemorrhage is a very rare manifestation of HSP. The authors present a case of a 46-year-old male presenting with pulmonary hemorrhage and renal involvement and the diagnosis of HSP. The patient responded to prednisolone therapy. Copyright
