Depends on...: The age and gender of the person diagnosed but it is generally higher than matched-controls, by up to 50-60 percent. Other studies suggest the mortality of itp from published case series ranges from 0.3 to 5 percent, consistent with the estimated frequency of intracranial hemorrhage. However, these are older studies and current results are likely significantly better.
