Oulfa Asbik | Aziza Elouali | A. El Khalifi | Maria Rkain | Abdeladim Babakhouya

Abstract: As much as the SARS-Cov-2 infection was mainly focused on because of its great effects on the respiratory tract, it has shown to impact the whole inflammatory system, causing different presentations that invade the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the heart, in addition to other symptomatologies. These new manifestations that are exposing different organ dysfunctions; which are related to a previous exposure to COVID19, can be described as aspects of pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS). PIMS is most likely a delayed dysregulated immune response to SARS-CoV 2, due to the cytokine storm, causing a hyperinflammatory response. And one of its discussed manifestations is HENOCH-SCHONLEIN purpura (HSP), an immune mediated vasculitis associated with IgA deposition, that mostly affects children.
