Abstract

Kasabach Merritt syndrome (KMS) is an uncommon complication of large haemangioma in which there is thrombocytopenia and coagulopathy. We report a case of a new born male baby presented with a large haemangioma on the right upper extremity and his initial laboratory tests were consistent with consumptive coagulopathy. He was diagnosed as a case of KMS and treated with oral prednisolone.
