About HSP (Henoch-Schönlein Purpura)
Henoch-Schönlein Purpura is a disease, which causes small blood vessels in the body to become inflamed and leaky in nature. The primary symptom of HSP is a rash that looks like many small raised bruises in body. HSP can cause affects in the kidneys, digestive tract and joints. HSP can occur any time in the life, but it is most common in children between 2 and 6 years of age. Mostly people recover from HSP completely, though kidney damage is the major long-term complication. In adults, HSP can lead to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and kidney failure, described as end-stage renal disease and it is treated with blood-filtering treatments called dialysis or a kidney transplant.
Causes of HSP (Henoch-Schönlein Purpura)
HSP is caused by an abnormality in immune system response in which the body’s immune system attacks the body’s own cells and organs. Usually, antibodies and proteins made by the immune system, to protect the body from foreign substances such as bacteria or viruses. But In HSP, these antibodies develop defects and attack the blood vessels. The factors which leads to this immune system response are not known. However, in 30 to 50 percent of cases, people have an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold, before getting HSP. It has also been associated with:-
- Infectious agents such as chickenpox, measles, hepatitis, and HIV viruses can be a cause.
- Some medications
- Foods items
- insect bites
- exposure to cold weather
- Genetics has its role in and may increase the risk of HSP, as it has occurred in different members of the same family, including in twins.
Symptoms of HSP (Henoch-Schönlein Purpura)
- Rash: rashes occur in the skin due to leaking blood vessels that looks like bruises or small red dots on the legs, arms, and buttocks. The rash first looks like hives and then it converts into looking like bruises, and it mostly spread to the chest, back, and face. The rash on pressing does not disappear or turn pale.
- Digestive tract problems: HSP can cause vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain, which can range from mild to severe. Blood may also come in the stool, though severe bleeding is rare in such cases.
- Joints Problems: Joints get affected due to Arthritis, pain and swelling, usually occur in the knees and ankles and less frequently in the elbows and wrists.
- Kidney involvement: Hematuria – blood is seen in the urine – is a common sign that HSP has affected the kidneys. Proteinuria – large amounts of protein in the urine – or development of hypertension suggests more severe kidney problems.
- Other symptoms: In some cases, boys with HSP develop swelling of the testicles. Symptoms affecting the central nervous system, such as seizures, and lungs, such as pneumonia, have been seen in rare cases.
Though the rash affects all people with HSP, pain in the joints or abdomen precedes the rash in about one-third of cases by as many as 14 days.
As in this disease there is involvement of pitta dosha whose vitiation has caused the vitiation in Rakta. As Rakta also got vitiated, which leads to improper functions of organ systems and disorder in auto immunity. And so here pitta have to be pacified and bring to the balance.
