Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common systemic vasculitis of childhood. It is usually seen following upper respiratory tract infections. It rarely involves the genital system or causes scrotal edema. With this report, we wanted to bring a different perspective to this clinic of acute scrotum. Herein, we present two HSP patients admitted to our clinic with scrotal involvement, with a review of the literature.
