Abstract: The present paper reports the fourth case of hypocomplementaemic urticarial vasculitis in a child. We describe a boy who, after many years of arthritis, urticaria, eye inflammation and hypocomplementaemia, developed rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis which was completely reversed by immunosuppressive therapy. CONCLUSION: Only three paediatric patients with hypocomplementaemic urticarial vasculitis have been described. Severe renal involvement was reversible with early appropriate treatment.
