Abstract

We present a case of dengue with refractory thrombocytopenia who developed cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) with intraparenchymal hemorrhage warranting surgical decompression. Patient was concluded to have secondary immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) which remained refractory to high dose steroids, IVIg therapy, but responded to thrombopoietin receptor (TPO-R) agonist, eltrombopag.
