Henoch-Schönlein purpura is the most common form of systemic vasculitis in children but occurs rarely in adults. Henoch-Schönlein purpura has characteristic features of a purpuric skin rash, abdominal pain, arthralgia, and abnormal urinary findings. Gastrointestinal tract involvement is characterized by abdominal pain and gastrointestinal bleeding. Recently, we experienced a case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura with gastrointestinal involvement mimicking colon cancer in a 41-year-old female who complained of erythematous macules, arthralgia, and abdominal pain. The initial colonoscopic findings and computed tomographs failed to rule out colon cancer, but serial endoscopic examinations and clinical manifestations revealed colonic involvement of Henoch-Schönlein purpura.
