  • 1. Local or Systemic bleeding (local bleeding)

    (systemic bleeding) systemic bleeding

    (massive bleeding) (prolong bleeding) (unrelated to injury) (multiple site bleeding) (spontaneous bleeding) (delay bleeding) (uncommon site bleeding)

    (hemathrosis) (intracerebral hemorrhage)

    Site of bleeding Skin Deep in soft tissuesMucous membranes (joints, muscles)

    (epistaxis, gum,vaginal, GI tract)

    Petechiae Yes No Ecchymoses (bruises) Small, superficial Large, deep Hemarthrosis / muscle bleeding Extremely rare Common Bleeding after cuts & scratches Yes No Bleeding after surgery or trauma Immediate, Delayed (1-2 days),

  • Immune thrombocytopenic

    purpura (ITP)

  • ITP

    An autoimmune Ab affecting platelets. Platelet counts 100,000 cell/mm3

    Newly diagnosed ITP Persistent ITP Chronic ITP Refractory ITP


  • ITP - EtiologyMost common occur in the young

    70% 1-10 yrs. 20 % 10-16 yrs. 10 % 3-12 months

    Most pediatric cases appear to be related to

    sensitization by viral infection 1-4 wk before the onset

    of thrombocytopenia .

    Infections include a non-specific URI, Rubella,

    Varicella, Measles , Pertussis, Mumps, EBV, CMV,

    HIV and bacteria or MMR vaccine


    Infection >>> IgG antibodies directed against specific platelet antigens or antigen-antibody complexes (viral antigen-antiviral antibody complex on the platelet surface)

    Platelet Ab Macrophage Fc receptors

    Platelet Ab to megakaryocyte


  • ITP: Clinical features The classic presentation of ITP is a previously healthy

    1-4 yr old

    child who has sudden onset of generalized petechiae

    and purpura.

    typically in children and young female

    viral infection


  • signs and symptoms (insidious onset)

    : superficial ecchymosis , petechiae.

    Epistaxis 25 % of case but not severe.

    Hepatosplenomegaly was uncommon.

    Severity depend on platelet count.

    ICH 0.1-0.5 %

    Hematuria 1-10%CNS bleeding 0-3%


  • Diagnosis

  • ITP


  • Management

    Restrict activityAvoid aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antihistamines

    Observe clinical 6-12


  • 2011 Clinical Practice Guideline on the Evaluation and

    Management of Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)

  • Initial Management of ITP1. Assessment of Disease Status: What bleeding is the patient experiencing?

    Determine the timing, location, and severity of

    bleeding symptoms. Does this patient have any additional risk factors for bleeding such as use of antithrombotic agents orhigh-risk occupation? Is a surgical procedure anticipated?

    Is this patient likely to comply with recommended treatments?

    Is the bleeding experienced by this patient interfering with his or her daily activities or causing significant anxiety?

  • 2.General Considerations for Initial Management: The majority of patients with no bleeding or mild bleeding (defined here as skin manifestations only, such as petechiae and bruising) can be treated with observation alone regardless of platelet count. First-line treatment includes observation, corticosteroids, IVIg, or anti-D immunoglobul
