Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is a rare, genetically inherited platelet disorder characterized by a lack of platelet aggregation. Until date, only close to 500 cases have been reported. GT is associated with clinical variability: some patients have only minimal bruising while others have frequent, severe and potentially fatal hemorrhages often making diagnosis difficult. Children are mostly diagnosed very early in life due to the spontaneous and unexplained mucocutaneous bleeding. The present case report deals with two siblings who reported with spontaneous gingival bleeding who were successfully managed by removal of local irritant factors and proper supportive care.
