Abstract

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an immunologic disorder that destroys platelets and megakaryocytes. Hemorrhagic complications are common in patients with ITP. However, thrombotic complications such as coronary artery disease and cerebral infarctions are infrequent. We report a patient with ITP who developed a cerebral infarction despite thrombocytopenia after long-term danazol therapy and was negative for the antiphospholipid antibody.
