A case of a fifteen-year-old boy with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who developed primary pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is presented. Such association is extremely rare in children. Searching the literature we identified only a few articles in which tuberculosis and thrombocytopenia were associated. It remains unclear whether chronic ITP and pulmonary TB are really an association or just a coincidence.
