Background Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura ITPalso known as primary pirpura thrombocytopenic idlopatik and autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, is defined as isolated thrombocytopenia with normal bone marrow and in the absence of other causes of thrombocytopenia. A report of 66 cases.

Foreign Atopic eczema Allergic urticaria Allergic rhinitis Hay fever Allergic asthma Anaphylaxis Food allergy common allergies include: Therefore, ITP is a significant cause of fetal and neonatal immune thrombocytopenia.
In addition, both H. Recommendations of the American Society of Hematology. Long-term responses seen with rituximab in patients with ITP.
Abstract Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura ITP is defined as a hematologic disorder, characterized by isolated thrombocytopenia without a clinically apparent cause. We present a case report on ITP with clinical presentation, diagnosis and purprua. FDA extends use of Promacta in young children with rare blood trobositopenia. This is because the trombositopenix autoimmune mechanism that destroyed the patient’s platelets to begin with will also destroy donor platelets.
In a study conducted in Great Britainit was noted that ITP causes an approximately 60 percent higher rate of mortality compared to gender- and age-matched subjects without ITP. However, while sometimes effective, it is costly and produces improvement that generally lasts less than a month.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
An ttrombositopenia gastrointestinal endoscopy showed fundal and corpus hemorrhagic gastritis and biopsy test for the presence of H. Helicobacter pylori and autoimmune neutropenia. A control endoscopy performed along with platelet count after 12 weeks of the eradication therapy showed normal fundus with no evidence of ulceration in any part of the stomach, and platelet count was in the normal range.
Abstract Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura ITP is an immune-mediated thrombocytopenia. Side effects of thrombopoietin receptor agonists include headache, joint or muscle pain, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, and an increased risk of blood clots.
Older patients have more severe and rare bleeding manifestations, such as GI bleeding and possibly intracranial hemorrhage secondary to co-morbidities such as hypertension.
However, the use of bleeding time in diagnosis is discouraged by the American Society of Hematology practice guidelines  and a normal bleeding time does not exclude a platelet disorder. Chemistry of Plants That Changed the World. Spontaneous remissions are unusual in adults.
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
Hypo- coagulability Thrombocytopenia Thrombocytopenic purpura: The epidemiology of immune thrombocytopenic purpura. The clinical presentation may be acute with severe bleeding, or insidious with slow development with mild or no symptoms.
In chronic refractory cases, where immune pathogenesis has been confirmed,  the off-label use of the vinca alkaloid    and trombositopeni agent vincristine may be attempted. The decision to treat ITP is based on the platelet count, degree of bleeding, and patient’s lifestyle. Conclusion The initial treatment of ITP includes: In recent years, dapsone has also proved helpful in treating lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and as a second-line treatment for ITP.
D Idio;atik – It causes a characteristic purpuric rash and an increased tendency to bleed. The risk of neonatal thrombocytopenia is increased with: A woman with symptomatic thrombocytopenia and an identifiable antiplatelet antibody should be started on therapy for their ITP which may include steroids or IVIG. Eur J Haematol Suppl.
ITP is diagnosed by a low platelet count in a complete blood trombosittopenia a common blood test. Once the platelet count has improved, the dose of steroid is gradually reduced while the possibility of relapse is monitored.
