Purpura Nephritis may occur due to causes such as allergic reactions that can be stimulated by factors like infections, some medications, foods, feather, pollen, etc.

Due to these factors, there is active immune response, leading to formation of large amounts of immune complexes in the blood vessels of kidneys. These immune complexes circulation with the blood circulation, and then get lodged in kidney tissues. In order to eliminate these foreign substances, excessive immune reaction is induced which may causing damage to the kidneys.
