Abstract :

Henoch-Schonlein purpura is a common form of systemic small vessel vasculitis in childhood. Although headache and behavioral changes have been described in a significant proportion of children with Henoch-Schonlein purpura, severe neurological complications are rare. In this article, we report a case of central vasculitis in an eleven-year-old girl who presented with headache, convulsion and impairment of vision. The treatment options for cerebral vasculitis of Henoch-Schonlein purpura are numerous but controversial in pediatric patients. Our patient was successfully treated by pulse methylprednisolone. The patient was followed-up for six months without any sequel.
