Description Epistaxis in children is one of the important presenting symptoms for attending emergency department in paediatric patients. Recurrent epistaxis is common in children. Although epistaxis in children usually occurred due to different benign conditions, it may be one of the important presenting symptoms of some inherited bleeding disorder. Whereas most bleeding disorders can be diagnosed through different standard hematologic assessments, diagnosing rare platelet function disorders may be challenging. In this article we describe one case report of platelet function disorders on Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia (GT). Our patient was a 10-year old girl who presented to us with history of recurrent severe epistaxis. She had a bruise on her abdomen and many scattered petechiae in different parts of the body. Her previous investigations revealed no demonstrable haemostatic anomalies. After performing platelet aggregation test, she was diagnosed as GT.
