Twenty spleens of steroid resistant cases of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpuras were studied by light and electron microscopy. Weights of the spleen were within normal range and were unremarkable grossly. On light microscopy reactive lymphoid follicles were seen in the five of the cases. Prominent and dirty looking sinusal histiocytes contain phagocytosed materials. Prominence of plasma cells were seen in the red pulp and also in the marginal zone. The three cases which failed to respond to splenectomy did not show any morphological variation from the others who had responded.
