MEHRA, B; AGGARWAL, V; WARDHAN, H  and  DUGAYA, SK. Severe jejunitis masquerading as intussusception in a case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2021, vol.59, n.1, pp.28d-28e. ISSN 2078-5151.

Intussusception is a well-known complication of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP).1 Diagnosis of intussusception is based on well-defined clinical and radiological features, but certain conditions can mimic intussusception, both clinically and radiologically, so closely as to result in unnecessary invasive procedures. Authors here present a case of HSP complicated by severe acute jejunitis, masquerading as jejuno-jejunal intussusception on ultrasound.
