Abstract

A 61-year-old patient was admitted to our hospital because of a chest abnormal shadow. He was suffered from ocular myopathy for more than 4 years. A lab data on the admission showed only a slight thrombocytopenia. After the unilateral pulmonary arterial occlusion test for the preoperative evaluation of thoracotomy, the hemorrhagic tendency was appeared. A detailed examination proved idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura which was presumed to be caused by the heart catheterization. We employed high-dose intravenous gamma-globulin infusion and concentrated platelet transfusion for 5 days for preventing hemorrhagic complications during the thoracotomy. The partial resection was undergone for the left upper lobe tumor, which was proved as large cell carcinoma. The postoperative hemorrhage was well controlled. We conclude that the high-dose intravenous gamma-globulin infusion and/or concentrated platelets transfusion should be positively employed for the patients with even slight thrombocytopenic purpura.
