Retrospective chart review was conducted to identify the clinical features of Henoch Schonlein purpura (HSP) in five children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). All five children, four of which were on anti-TNF therapies, experienced the onset of HSP after their IBD diagnosis. HSP averaged 20.8 months in duration. The patients in our cohort, particularly those on anti-TNF therapy for inflammatory bowel disease, experienced chronic and recurrent courses of HSP.
