Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP) is the most commonly seen systemic leukocytoclastic vasculitis in children. Although it frequently presents with skin, joint, and gastrointestinal system involvement, genitourinary system involvement is rarely seen as well. We present a child with HSP-associated penile and scrotum involvement and a literature review was performed. An eight-years-old male patient who underwent five days systemic, five days oral steroid therapy in hospital and had a total recovery from the HSP-associated penile and scrotum involvement that is rarely reported in the literature. Scrotum and penile involvement are rare in patients with HSP; acceptable with a good prognosis. Disease-related genitourinary system involvement may be associated with findings such as penis and scrotum involvement, balanitis, urethritis, hematoma in the bladder wall, epididymo-orchitis and priapism. In the literature, most commonly scrotal edema or only penile involvement is mentioned. However, treatment for HSP is controversial, steroid and analgesic treatment can be applied in patients with HSP and penile/scrotum involvement.

Keywords: Balanitis; child; Henoch-Schönlein purpura; penile-scrotal involvement; treatment
