Formatted abstract
Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a risk factor for ischemic stroke and, far more rarely, hemorrhage. We report the case of an untreated 32-year-old woman with a history of JAK2 V617F–positive ET with cerebellar and subarachnoid hemorrhages without evidence of sinus vein thrombosis. She was commenced on oral cytotoxic and antiplatelet therapy. This case report discusses the underlying mechanism of hemorrhagic thrombocythemia and the management dilemma presented by the recommended treatment implications.
