Three of the following five criteria were required to meet American College of Rheumatology (ACR) classification criteria for hypersensitivity vasculitis:

  1. Age at disease onset older than 16 years.
  2. Medication at disease onset as a precipitating factor.
  3. Palpable purpura.
  4. Maculopapular rash.
