Purpose. Emergency laparotomy is generally considered the appropriate course of action for small bowel intussusception associated with Henoch-Schonlein's purpura (HSP). In this paper, we define a conservative approach after witnessing spontaneous reduction of ileoileal invagination at laparotomy in a patient with HSP who had been on steroid therapy for renal involvement.
