Immune thrombocytopenia

"Immune thrombocytopenia is a disorder characterized by a blood disorder called thrombocytopenia," the condition in which there are a blood supply of platelets is required for normal blood clotting. Associated people can develop red or purple spots on the skin caused by bleeding just below the skin's surface. People with immune thrombocytopenia may have frequent bleeding episodes, such as nose bleeds or bleeding in the moist lining of the mouth. Though immune thrombocytopenia can be diagnosed at any time, there are two specific times when the condition is most likely to develop: early childhood and late adulthood. The decrease in platelets in children is often sudden, but platelet counts typically return to normal levels within weeks to months. Childhood thrombocytopenia in children is often preceded by a minor disease, such as upper respiratory infection, but no association between the infection and immune thrombocytopenia is established," the author claims.
