Rheumatoid purpura or IgA vasculitis is a small vessel vasculitis that mainly affects children but can also occur in adults. Cutaneous and articular involvement is the most frequent, digestive and renal involvement, rarer, makes all the seriousness of the disease. An infectious trigger is frequently mentioned, in particular group A hemolytic β streptococcus, but other germs may be involved, such as Campylobacter jejuni, best known as the etiological agent of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
