Intratumoral consumption of indium-111-labeled platelets in a child with splenic hemangioma and thrombocytopenia.

The authors report Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) in a patient with thrombocytopenia and splenic hemangioma. A 13-month-old boy with a history of anemia, thrombocytopenia, and abdominal mass was admitted to the hospital. The scintigraphic studies showed that a large mass contiguous to the spleen was responsible for the platelet uptake. After partial splenectomy, the platelet count returned to normal. This report of KMS in a child with splenic hemangioma suggests that the scintigraphic studies are mandatory to confirm diagnosis. Indium-111-labeled platelets are useful in identifying hemangiomatous sequestration of platelets in patients with thrombocytopenia.
