Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) is an IgA mediated vasculitis predominantly affecting the pediatric population. This disease may leave a lifelong residual effect on renal system with a propensity for a relapse during pregnancy leading to hypertensive and hemorrhagic complications. We present a case of a patient who had HSP in adulthood and had uncomplicated caesarean delivery under regional anesthesia.
