A case of mandibular prognathism in a 15-year-old woman with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is reported.<BR>In this patient, ITP had been diagnosed during preoperative orthodontic treatment. Since the preoperative laboratory data revealed a low platelet count of 5.5×10<SUP>4</SUP>/μl, the patient was given preoperative high-dose γ-globulin therapy (400mg/kg/day) for 5 days. On the day of the operation, the platelet count had increased to 12.0×10<SUP>4</SUP>/μl.Intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy was performed, and the amount of perioperative blood loss was 194g.After surgery, there was no abnormal bleeding, and the postoperative course was uneventful.<BR>High-dose γ-globulin therapy is considered a very useful and safe method for preoperative treatment of patients with ITP.
