  The treatment of Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) includes long term steroid therapy. Avascular Necrosis of femoral head, Diabetes Mellitus and various secondary infections are the complications of such long term steroid medications. We after taking informed consent are presenting a was successfully managed case of 52 years old patient with chronic ITP diagnosed with bilateral AVN femoral head and posted for unilateral core decompression and fibular graft surgery. Atraumatic airway management, adequate platelet transfusion and meticulous hemodynamic and coagulation profile monitoring are some of the major peri-operative concerns in a patient of ITP. A meticulous knowledge of various anesthetic considerations can help in improving the prognosis of a patient of ITP posted for surgery.
