Abstract. A 62‐year‐old woman with an unusually protracted post‐transfusion purpura failed to respond to three 3‐litre plasma exchanges and prednisolone (50 mg/day) for 10 days but then had a good though transient response to two courses of high‐dose immunoglobulin infusions with cessation of bleeding. The subsequent recurrent thrombocytopenia was mild and asymptomatic and only partially controlled by corticosteroids but finally resolved completely after 5 months.
