Brief Summary:
This study is performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of various measures in the treatment of HSPN with mild proteinuria in children.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Henoch-Schoenlein Purpura Nephritis Drug: Prednisone Drug: ACEI Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Henoch-Schonlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) is one of the most common complications of Henoch-Schonlein purpura, and has become one of the main causes of chronic kidney disease in children. However, the diagnosis and treatment of HSPN is still based on the clinical experience, lacking of evidence-based support. This study is performed to explore the biological markers for early prediction of the prognosis and evaluate the efficacy and safety of various measures in the treatment of HSPN in children.

The patients who are proved to get HSPN by renal biopsy will be randomized to receive either prednisone p.o. or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor(ACEI) p.o. We will follow up them for about 2.5 years and compare the efficacy and safety of both measures by monitoring several indexes.
