Interesting physical exam finding in Henoch-Schonlein purpura

Hello everyone!

Here's a cool fact that someone I absolutely adore shared with me: The Pediatricians call Henoch-Schonlein purpura as, “Butt-itis” because the rash frequently coalesces on the pressure points and is gravity dependent, in other words, on the buttock!

He said that in his years of experience, he has found this to be true in almost every patient with HSP, and sometimes it is the key to the diagnosis. Too often, doctors don’t do a full skin exam and can miss it!

Isn't this a fun fact? Love learning new things everyday :)
