Abstract

A 41‐year‐old female with TAR syndrome and a normal number of megakaryocytes in the bone marrow improved after splenectomy. There were no signs of a qualitative platelet defect. She was followed for nearly 2 years during which the bleeding time was increased without clinical bleeding, however.
