Abstract: Kasabach-Meritt syndrome is a combination of thromobocytopenia, hemolytic anemia, and acute or chronic consumptive coagulopathy in association with rapidly enlarging hemangioma. A male infant of 5 days was admitted in paediatric ward with this syndrome. The baby had ecchymotic patches over face and extremities and bleeding through umbilical stump. The child expired due to severe thrombocytopenia with consumptive coagulopathy leading to precipituous hemorrhage superimposed by septicemia. An autopsy was performed which confirmed retroperitoneal lesion as kaposiform hemangioendothelioma.
