Henoch Schölein Purpura (HSP) is the most common systemic vasculitis of childhood. In contrast to adults, the occurrence of blood blisters is uncommon in children. We report the case of a male 3 years old who came to the emergency room after the onset of an acute form of bullous lesions associated to palpable purpura and systemic involvement. The patient required hospitalization and systemic corticosteroid treatment, with favourable progress.

Keywords: Blisters. Henoch-Schönlein purpura.
