Abstract : Hepatitis A is a common endemic infection in a country such as India where a large majority of population is unimmunized and is exposed to unhygienic food, water, and living conditions. Most of these patients develop a classic form of hepatitis A with jaundice, abdominal pain, fever, and diarrhea. However, a few patients develop rare extrahepatic and hematological complications. A case of autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura with acute hepatitis A is presented here.
