Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is used widely in treating pain, fever, and inflammation. Its side effects are mainly due to acute renal impairment and gastric discomfort. We hereby report a rare case of Henoch–Schönlein purpura nephritis secondary to ibuprofen consumption which has not been reported in literature before.
