Because of the rareness of the reports about immune thrombocytopenic purpura patients undergoing cardiac surgery, there is  no sufficient knowledge about perioperative strategies. In this article, we  report a 42-year-old female patient with severe mitral regurgitation and large right atrial thrombus, in whom thrombocytopenia had disappeared after mitral valve replacement and thrombectomy f rom the right atrium. Large thrombi should be kept in mind as the cause of thrombocytopenia.
