Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a potentially life-threatening disease that can be caused due to several underlying disorders. The diagnosis and management of DAH remains challenging given its nonspecific presentation and lack of uniform criteria for the diagnosis. The management of DAH involves treating the causative underlying condition. On extensive review of the literature, only fewer than 10 cases of DAH associated with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) were found. The outcomes in DAH associated with ITP were also found to be variable in the reported cases, ranging from clinical recovery to mortality. We present a 45-year-old man with ITP who developed DAH, and a review of the available literature.
