Introduction Immunoglobulin A vasculitis (IgAV) is the most common form of childhood systemic vasculitis. It is mostly self-limiting and characterized by skin, joint, gastrointestinal tract, and kidney involvement. Microribonucleic acids (miRNAs) are 18-25 base-long non-coding RNA group acting on gene expression. They have been shown to be effective on the immune system studies to date.
