Evans syndrome is a rare disease characterized by autoimmune hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia. Its initial presentation with intracranial hemorrhage is rare. We report a case of a 12-year-old girl who presented to the emergency department with altered mental status secondary to an intracranial hemorrhage and later diagnosed to have Evans syndrome.
