Hoskins B, Keeven N, Dang M, Keller E, Nagpal R. A child with covid-19 and immunoglobulin a vasculitis. Pediatr Ann. 2021;50(1):e44-e48 doi: 10.3928/19382359-20201211-01.
We describe the case of a child with progressive abdominal pain and rash admitted to a large tertiary children's hospital in the Chicago metropolitan area and subsequently found to have immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This patient presented with abdominal pain, purpuric lesions, hematochezia, increasingly elevated D-dimer, and abnormal inflammatory markers on laboratory evaluation. To the best of our knowledge, this article describes the only reported pediatric case of COVID-19 associated with IgA vasculitis. [Pediatr Ann. 2021;50(1):e44-e48.].
