A rare case report on Glanzmann thrombasthenia

Somy Cherian, Preenumol Thomas, Roshni PR.

Abstract
Glanzmann thrombasthenia (GT) is a rare inherited blood clotting disorder characterized by the impaired function of platelets that are essential for proper blood clotting and can lead to prolonged bleeding time. Patient with GT may experience menorrhagia, easy bruising, purpura, epistaxis, and gingival bleeding. Here, we report a case of a young male, who was presented with complaints of malena, epigastric pain, and generalized weakness. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed hemoperitoneum and perihepatic hematoma, respectively. Later, he also developed black-colored stools and occasional cough. Coagulation profile was suggestive of Glanzmann thrombasthenia. The patient was treated symptomatically, and as the conditions improved, the patient was discharged in a stable state of health. Only up to 500 cases were reported regarding GT till this date. As GT is a rare disorder, it needs to be reported in the current clinical setting.

Key words: Epistaxis; Hemoperitoneum; Glanzmann Thrombasthenia; Perihepatic Hematoma; Purpura
