A 9-year-old girl presented with fever, conjunctival injection, desquamation following erythema and edema of the fingers and toes, strawberry tongue, polymorphous rash and cervical lymphadenopathy. She showed palpable purpura on the lower extremities after 7 days of the onset of the above symptoms. She showed typical Henoch-Schönlein purpura concurrent with Kawasaki disease. There is no known report of a case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura concurrent with Kawasaki disease and evaluation of the same pathogenesis of the two diseases. We've got a clue from the facts that human parvovirus B19 could develope both of the diseases. But Human parvovirus B19 PCR was negative. We, herein, report an unusual case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura concurrent with Kawasaki disease.
