Foreign Allergic contact dermatitis Mantoux test. Secondary eradication of Helicobacter pylori was effective against refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Journal List Contemp Clin Dent v. Cellular immune mechanisms in autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura: Bleeding time from minor lacerations or abrasions is usually prolonged.

The major goal for treatment of ITP is to provide a safe platelet count to prevent major bleeding and avoid unnecessary treatment of asymptomatic patients with mild to moderate thrombocytopenia. Then, secondary causes 5—10 percent of suspected ITP cases should be excluded. Corticosteroids, typically prednisone, are the backbone of the initial treatment. Werlhof, is characterized by premature destruction of autoantibody-coated platelets [ 1 ], causing thrombocytopenia and subsequent mucocutaneous bleeding.

Abstract Frombositopenia thrombocytopenic purpura ITP is defined as a hematologic disorder, characterized by isolated thrombocytopenia without a clinically apparent cause.

Other biochemical examinations, liver function tests, and ultrasonography of abdomen were normal. In fact, trombositopena enlarged spleen should lead to a search for other possible causes for the thrombocytopenia. A woman with symptomatic thrombocytopenia and an identifiable antiplatelet antibody should be started on therapy for their ITP which may include steroids or IVIG. In addition to this, few studies have also demonstrated a temporal association between the disappearance of anti-CagA antibodies in the serum and improvement of ITP [ 8 ].

This is because the underlying autoimmune mechanism that destroyed the patient’s platelets to begin with will also destroy donor platelets. There is marked variability in the clinical presentation of ITP. The incidence of Trombositopennia is estimated at 50— new cases per million per year, with children accounting for half of that amount.

The procedure is potentially risky in ITP cases due to the increased possibility of significant bleeding during surgery.

A bone purpkra aspiration or biopsy may also be done. On the 2 trpmbositopenia day after the patient reported, there was increased bleeding, hematoma and gingival enlargement in lower anterior region [ Figure 4 ], and on the 4 th day, hematoma formation was seen in lower anterior region lingually [ Figure 5 ].

The patient continued to take steroids for a period of 1 month in tapered doses once the alternate day and later discontinued after one monthhowever, she continued to take pantaprazole to complete the 6 weeks course. Fetal blood analysis to determine the platelet count is not generally performed as ITP-induced thrombocytopenia in the fetus is generally less severe than NAIT. Our case was abrupt and trombosiitopenia in onset. Another option, suitable for Rh-positive patients with functional idipoatik is intravenous administration of Rho D immune globulin [Human; Anti-D].
