A platelet function study in a patient with megakaryoblastic leukaemia is reported. The abnormalities of the platelet function suggest a probable platelet membrane injury and a platelet release defect. The reduced platelet half-life and the non changing splenohepatic ratio confirm the clinical and histological features of the systemic disease.
