Intravenous immunoglobulin(IVIG) has been widely used to treat idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura in childhood. Aseptic meningitis has been reported as a rare complication of IVIG therapy. This report is on an 11 year-old boy with ITP who suffered from aseptic meningitis following the administration of IVIG. He was given 1 g/kg of IVIG for 2 days, and on the fourth day after the administration of IVIG, he experienced headache, vomiting and fever. Cerebrospinal fluid showed 400/mm3 white cells with 96% segmented neutrophils and 1% lymphocytes. The symptoms subsided within 8 days of admission.
