The ~n~phyloctoid putpUr~ is ~n ~/lergic vasOllitis which may involve the skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract and the kidneys. Although SO percent of these patients develop abdominal pain, surgic~1 complications are quite infrequent.

spontaneous perforation of intestine in Henoch-schOnlein purpura is also rare and only several cases have been reported in the literature so far.

Most of the cases with perforated intestine have been followed by intussusception and focal intestinal necrosis.
