Purpura is a small hemorrhage into the skin, mucous membrane or serosal surface. Because purpura is caused by extravasation of blood from the vasculature into the skin it does not blanch with pressure. The differential diagnosis to purpura can be divided into platelet disorders, vascular factors and coagulation factor deficiencies. Management depends on the etiology of the purpura but should begin with removal of the offending agent if one is identified.
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura ITP is a rare acquired bleeding disorder with an estimated incidence of 1 in 10, people in the general population. The association of ITP with breast cancer is an even rarer entity with very limited reports in the English literature. We report a case of a year-old female with no significant past medical history who presented with sudden onset of malaise, syncope, gingival bleed and epistaxis.
