High-dose methylprednisolone was initiated at a dose of 1000 mg/day for 3 days followed by 750 mg/day for 4 days, with each dose administered orally early in the morning. Platelet count reached 28,000/mm3 and 31,000/mm3 on the 3rd and 7th days of treatment, respectively. Mucosal and cutaneous bleeding ceased. Methylprednisolone treatment was continued at a dose of 1 mg/kg/day for 7 days and tapered over a week. Platelet count was 22,000/mm3 on the last day, but bleeding reoccurred 10 days later and platelet count was 3900/mm3.
