The presence of IgG, IgA and IgM antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies(ANCA) were inves-tigated in 32 children with Henoch-Schölein Purpura(HS purpura), in 14 children with HS pur-pura nephritis who were confirrned by renal biopsy and in 12 control children using flow cytom-etry(FASCan, Beckton-Dickinson, Co, USA) and indirect immunofluorescence technique(Sigma Diagnostics, USA). There were no evidence of IgG, IgA or IgM cytoplasmic ANCA(p-ANCA), and perinuclear ANCA(c-ANCA) in the sera of 32 children. These results suggest that ANCA are not involved in the pathogenesis of vasculitis in HS purpura & HS purpura nephritis.
