Abstract

Glanzmann's thrombasthenia (GT) is a rare inherited platelet disorder with no specific treatment. Prophylactic and therapeutic platelet transfusions work only as supportive treatments. To date, there has been no report of surgical treatment for malignant disease in GT patients. We herein report the case of a 43-year-old woman presenting with cecal cancer with accompanying GT. The patient underwent a laparotomic procedure under general anesthesia for resection of the tumor. A good perioperative course was achieved by the transfusion of ABO-identical and antihistocompatibility locus antigen-matched platelets, without causing any accidental bleeding.
