Are there effective treatments for thrombocytopenia?

Yes: There are multiple effective treatments for this condition depending on the cause. Drug-induced or immune causes can be reliably treated. For more severe cases such as due to bone marrow failure syndromes, the treatments are more compicated and less satisfactory.
