Hard to say...: Spontaneous bleeding is more of a concern when platelet counts are below 20,000...

Doubtful: As long as platelet function is normal, kids don't bleed excessively at those levels.Some with the condition chronic ITP will maintain levels in the 60,000 range for years with normal clotting function.
