IBANEZ FRANCO, Elvis Javier  e  RUIZ DIAZ ROS, Leda Liz. Immune thrombocytopenic purpura after vaccination against COVID-19. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2022, vol.9, n.1, pp.113-117. ISSN 2312-3893.

We present the case of a male patient with immunological thrombocytopenic purpura that occurs 10 days after the application of the COVID-19 vaccine. All secondary causes were ruled out with complementary studies. With corticosteroid pulses, he presented clinical and laboratory improvement, progressing favorably.

Assuming the temporal relationship with the vaccine, it is presumed that this thrombocytopenia was an adverse reaction to it. No cases of immune thrombocytopenic purpura have been reported in the country until the last bulletin of adverse reactions related to this vaccine.

Palavras-chave : idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura; covid-19 vaccines; adverse drug reaction registry systems.
