We describe the case of a newly diagnosed HIV-1-positive man who was noted to have asymptomatic HIV-related idiopathic (immune) thrombocytopaenic purpura. On commencing antiretroviral therapy we believe he experienced an uncommon immune reconstitution phenomenon resulting in the rapid worsening of his thrombocytopenia, requiring steroid therapy which stabilized his platelet levels.
