Among all bleeding disorders, the idiopathic thrombocytopenia is uncommon disorder. The main aspect is drop in platelet count. The associated symptoms are bruising with minor trauma, ecchymosis, hemorrhagic areas and hematomas, which correlate with count of platelets. There are so many factors which contribute to its development and they are preceded to the signs and symptoms. In this case, there is no such a contributing part which will help to reach the diagnosis, where a 65-year-old woman with average height and built reported in our dental office with intraoral bleeding since past 5 hours- There is no significant history except drug- After managing the oozing of blood, we referred the patient for blood investigations that revealed the idiopathic thrombocytopenia. This can be fatal, if attention is not paid within time. Hence, during clinical examination, each case is special and one should have the basic knowledge of systemic diseases.
