Infantile acute hemorrhagic edema is a rare leukocytoclastic vasculitis that affects children under 2 years of age. The disease has a benign outcome usually with no complications or recurrence. We report the case of a 17-month-old girl with clinical and histopathological findings that are typical of infantile acute hemorrhagic edema.

Keywords : Child; Purpura; Purpura; Schoenlein-Henoch; Vasculitis.
