IgA Nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis worldwide and is often idiopathic but its association with Ulcerative colitis is reported in various case reports. Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a systemic disorder with renal, gastrointestinal, articular and cutaneous manifestations in which renal involvement is in the form of IgA Nephropathy. Here we report a case of 45 year old patient with IgA nephropathy without nephrotic syndrome, with Ulcerative Colitis and Venous Thromboembolism in the absence of any other hypercoagulable state which may be considered as a form of less severe HSP or an extended form of IgA Nephropathy.
Keywords: Henoch-Schonlein purpura, hypercoagulable, nephrotic.
