Chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura and Helicobacter pylori Eradication: A case study

Not to be confused with autoimmune thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. Retrieved October 16, Eradication of Helicobacter pylori led to the increased platelet count and provides a new insight for a non-immunosuppressive treatment in selective ITP patients.

CopyrightTiwari et al. Many older recommendations suggested a certain platelet count threshold usually somewhere below Signs of chronic disease, infection, wasting, or frombositopenia nutrition indicate that the patient has another illness. Trombositopemia approximately 60 percent of cases, antibodies against platelets can be detected.

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura: epidemiology and implications for patients.

Recent research now indicates that impaired production of the iiopatik hormone thrombopoietinwhich is the stimulant for platelet production, may be a contributing factor to the reduction in circulating platelets. The spleen is the site of autoantibody production white pulp ; it is also the trombksitopenia of phagocytosis of autoantibody-coated platelets red pulp. All the petechial lesions were completely resolved over the neck, arm, and forearms.

ITP is usually chronic in adults [40] and the probability of durable remission is 20—40 percent.

Such secondary causes include leukemiamedications e. In chronic refractory cases, where immune pathogenesis has been confirmed, [15] the off-label use of the vinca alkaloid [16] [17] [18] and chemotherapy agent vincristine may be attempted. In addition, both H. ITP is the result of accelerated platelet destruction by the reticuloendothelial system, primarily the spleen.


Platelet transfusion is not normally recommended and is usually unsuccessful idipoatik raising a patient’s platelet count. The major causes of accelerated platelet consumption include immune thrombocytopenia, decreased bone marrow production, and increased splenic sequestration.

Most cases respond during the 1 st week of treatment. Patient was also the known case of ischemic heart disease for past 7 years. Management of immune thrombocytopenic purpura in pregnancy. On complete blood cell count, isolated thrombocytopenia is the hallmark of ITP.

Side effects of thrombopoietin receptor agonists include headache, joint or muscle pain, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, and an increased risk of blood clots.

Bacterium eradication with antibiotics, in 12 of 13 infected patients However, the use of bleeding time in diagnosis is discouraged by the American Society of Hematology practice guidelines [10] and a normal bleeding time does not exclude a platelet disorder. Treatment should be restricted to those patients with moderate or severe thrombocytopenia who are bleeding or at risk of bleeding.

Nevertheless, in the case of an ITP patient already scheduled for surgery who has a dangerously low platelet count and has experienced a poor response to other treatments, IVIg can rapidly increase platelet counts, and can also help reduce the risk of major bleeding by transiently increasing platelet counts.

The diagnosis of ITP is a process of exclusion. On the 2 nd 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 procedure is purpira risky in ITP cases due to the increased possibility of significant bleeding during surgery. Intravenous immunoglobulin IVIg may be infused in some cases in order to decrease the rate at which macrophages consume antibody -tagged platelets.
