The vasculitis of Henoch-Schönlein purpura may involve the scrotum and clinically mimic diseases requiring surgical intervention, such as testicular torsion or an incarcerated inguinal hernia. The ultrasonographic features include marked edema of the scrotal skin and contents with intact vascular flow in the testicles. These findings may suggest the correct diagnosis and prevent unnecessary surgical exploration.
