We describe three patients with chronic autoimmune thrombocytopenia who exhibited transient remission during viral infection (varicella, hepatitis B, and influenza virus pneumopathy). In two patients, a male homosexual and an hemophiliac, thrombocytopenia was associated with AIDS-related complex. The third patient had classic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. The mechanism of these rare remissions is discussed.
