Keywords: Acute infantile hemorrhagic edema, leukocytoclastic vasculitis, purpura

Acute infantile hemorrhagic edema (AIHE) is a leukocytoclastic vasculitis limited to the skin and is usually seen between 6-24 months. Patients present with edema, fever and purpuric rash. Although the patients recover spontaneously in about 2-4 weeks, the rashes can seriously disturb their families. In this case, we presented a nine-months-old child diagnosed with AHIE who was admitted to the hospital with purpura and swelling of hands and feet after an upper respiratory tract infection. We wanted to emphasize that recognition of the rare AIHE by emergency specialist, pediatricians, and dermatologists and informing the patient relatives about the benign course, will reduce unnecessary research and concerns of the families.
