Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is the condition of having an abnormally low platelet count with an unknown cause. Acute subdural hematomas (ASDHs) usually develop in trauma patients and often involve a high bleeding tendency. However, ITP patients rarely have a large ASDH, and when a traditional decompressive craniectomy is performed on patients with coagulopathy, the mortality rate is higher because of the greater bleeding risk. We report the case of an ITP patient with a large ASDH who treated with a burr-hole trephination and irrigation and who was discharged without any neurological deficit.
Key Words: Acute subdural hematoma; Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura; Burr-hole trephination
