Chronic subdural haematoma (SDH) complicating chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), in an adult is extremely rare. There are only four such case reports available in the literature and all these patients had surgical evacuation of the haematoma. We report an elderly female with chronic ITP presenting with a chronic SDH which resolved spontaneously. This is possibly the first report of its kind in the world literature. The possible pathogenesis is discussed and pertinent literature reviewed.
