The association of haematological abnormalities and hereditary nephritis is rare; it is mainly included in a spectrum of autosomal dominant macrothrombocytopenias: May-Hegglin anomaly, Fechtner, Sebastian, Epstein and Alport syndrome with macro thrombocytopenia. We are presenting a missed case of a boy who presented with epistaxis and his diagnostic work up revealed macrothrombocytopenia, sensorineural hearing loss and chronic nephropathy which constitute the Epstein syndrome, with rapid deterioration of kidney function.
