Summary Although both breast cancer and immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) are common conditions, the simultaneous coexistence of these two diseases is rare. ITP is an autoimmune disease in which the presence of autoantibodies against platelets results in splenic sequestration and thrombocytopenia that may be associated with lymphoid neoplasms [1]. Except for an observational case series of 10 patients [2], only a few individual case reports of ITP coinciding with breast cancer have been reported [3–8]. We are reporting two cases with simultaneous confirmed ITP and breast cancer. The platelet counts in both women have improved during adjuvant breast cancer chemotherapy.
