Idiopathic pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a diagnosis of exclusion for any patient presenting with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Patient with PH may present with thrombocytopenia along with other signs of PH. We report a case of PH who presented with thrombocytopenia and breathlessness. The possible causes of thrombocytopenia were evaluated and excluded prior to concluding that her thrombocytopenia is due to PH. Various pathogenic mechanisms have been described for thrombocytopenia associated with PH.
