Title: Brucellosis as a trigger agent for Henoch-Schönlein purpura
Author: C. Akgun, S. Akbayram, S. Guner, F. Aktar, H. Temel, M. Basaranoglu

Abstract: Vasculitis in childhood is a result of a spectrum of causes ranging from idiopathic conditions with primary vessel inflammation to syndromes after exposure to recognized antigenic triggers, such as infectious agents and drugs causing hypersensitivity reactions. Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common vasculitis of childhood. Although there is often a history of a recent or simultaneous upper respiratory tract infection, no consistent causative organism is found. We report an 11-year old boy with HSP and brucellosis and we speculated that brucellosis was the trigger agent for HSP (Ref. 13).

Keywords: brucellosis, trigger agent, Henoch-Schönlein purpura, vasculitis, infectious agents, drug, hypersensitivity reactions, primary vessel inflammation.
