The are completely: Different. Itp is the autoimmune destruction of platelets and is managed with immunosuppression - the first line is usually prednisone. Ttp is the microvascular consumption of platelets (small clots). This can be associated with anemia, renal failure, ha and fever. It is a medical emergency and is managed with plasma exchange. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Pv by itself does'nt cause low grade fevers. However, pv can increase your risk to have blood clots and blood clots can give you low grade fevers also, pv can transform into other condition i.E myelofibrosis as well as mds/ acute leukemia in about 20%-30%). Low grade fevers occur quite commonly in myelofibrosis and acute leukemia. See your md to rule out other condition i.e. Autoimmune , infection. ...Read more
Range of symptoms: Ttp can involve many different organs. One can have renal dysfunction, fever, altered mental status, low platelet counts and hemolytic anemia. These signs can lead to symptoms of bleeding, bruising, petechiae, confusion, anemia, fatigue, and possible jaundice among other things. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can chronic low & giant platelets (80-125) w/o a cause be ITP in adult w. Henoch Schonlein? In/out of HSP remission, Plts same, WBC/RBC vary low-norml
Hsp: hsp doesn't cause any changes in platelet count. I am not sure what do you mean been in and out of remission. The chronic issues with hsp is the blood in the urine, butost of the time it is microscopic. Blood pressure need to be monitored. If you have other issues with platelet count, you probably need to see hematologist to help you sort it out ...Read more
Paitent PBS report is normocytic mild hypochromic anemia with mild leukocytosis and mild yhrombocytosis. platelets are mild increasesd 5.72 lac/cumm?
Check your iron: This implies that you may have an iron deficiency and that you've had blood loss. Your body will be able to make new blood cells but I may need iron to make hemoglobin. You may need an iron supplement. Leukocytosis and thrombocytosis often accompanied the iron deficiency anemia.of course other causes should be considered. ...Read more
What is the name of rare Thrombocytopenia causing severe fluctuation in platelet count , Not ITP or TTP .
Otto. : Have no idea and need more information. Recommend you go to up to date. ...Read more
ITP is just what...: It sounds like. It is characterized by bleeding, bruising (purpura) and petechiae that develop because of a low PLT count (aka thrombocytopenia), and where the specific trigger for thrombocytopenia is not known (idiopathic). We do know that in itp, the pt makes antibodies to auto-antigens found on the PLT surface (often pla-1) which mark them for destruction. This makes the PLT count low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the causes of chronic moderate autoimmune neutropenia & moderate-severe thrombocytopenia with giant platelets? Occasionally anemic.
Autoimmunity: The development of an autoimmune disease is most likely from impaired regulation of the immune function leading to immunologic attack on one's own tissue. The presence of one autoimmune disease increases the risk to develop another one probably from the impaired regulation. However we have still much to learn about autoimmunity as to why some people are more prone to it (female are more at risk). ...Read more

High risk pregnancy: It is something that is manageable, however. You should see a perinatologist for your high risk pregnancy to make sure your baby is okay and also see a hematologist through out your pregnancy- to make sure you and baby are okay. Your hematologist will be able to help and give you the necessary treatment as indicated- like-platelet transfusion, ivig, steroid etc. ...Read more
Yes: Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpera is an autoimmune mediate destruction of platelets due to anti-platelet antibodies. This may predispose you to disruption of successful pregnancy as result of interruption of the vascular supply to the placenta, which prevents successful pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Easy bruise: These results do not point to an aplastic condition because there is normal WBC count and adequate platelets. They should have done labs for bleeding diathesis such as Prothrombin time(PT/INR) and Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) as well as possible blood clotting factor levels. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Autoimmune disease: Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is a bleeding disorder in which the immune system destroys platelets, which are necessary for normal blood clotting. Persons with the disease have too few platelets in the blood. Check this site: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001562/. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Primary or secondary: Elevated platelets (thrombocytosis) can be primary (driven by a bone marrow disorder) or secondary (eg, reactive). Reactive/secondary is the most common, with some frequent associated conditions including iron deficiency anemia, reactive (eg, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, post surgical). Thrombocytosis that goes away is likely reactive. Primary can be evaluated for by labs & bone marrow biopsy. ...Read more
In adult male with chronic elevation in antiphosphlipid antibodies but no clotting event, is splenomegaly & fluctuating thromocytopenia common?
Production stops: The body continuously recycles & replaces different cells in the blood. Red cells last ~100days, platelets several hours, other cells vary. The healthy system acheives a steady state of producing cells as fast as they break down. If an event such as a toxic exposure (chloramphenacol) or tumor invasion shuts down the "factory", no new material will be made & you get low on everything. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LOW PLATLET COUNT: Thrombocytes also called platlets are cells in our blood and have important function in clotting of blood. When there is lower than normal count of these cells in the blood it is called Thrombocytopenia Normal Platlet Count is 150000 to 450000,and when it goes below 50000 it is called Thrombocytopenia and can cause tendency to bleed like nose bleed,easily bruising and purpura(petechiae) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Thrombocytopenia means low platelet count. It is an abnormal lab- like a symptom, not a disease. There are many reasons for it and "how long it lasts" depends on the cause. It can be from toxic exposure (examples= radiation, alcohol, or drugs), an immune problem ("ITP"), from infections or from bone marrow dysfunction. It can be from Leukemia or from treatment of Leukemia. NEED MORE INFORMATION. ...Read more
CBC and further: A complete blood cell count (CBC) includes the number of platelets in blood. Normal range is from about 150k to 250 k. There is usually no risk of bleeding if the count is above 40k. If thrombocytopenia is detected, it would require further investigation to ascertain the cause. ...Read more
It depends on cause: You need to know the cause. One common cause is called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or itp. This is a chronic condition which can last from a few months to several years. Other causes can be short lived and platelets recover. You should be sure to find out the cause. Or seek a second opinion to learn more about your problem from another specialist. ...Read more
There are many.: Bruises, particularly in unusual places can be a clue (but can occur anywhere). A pinpoint red rash known as petechiae is frequently seen. Blood blisters in the mouth (wet purpura) can be seen and are a reason to be treated. Bleeding from other mucosal surfaces can occur. Rarely, intracranial bleeding can occur and be life threatening. If you have thrombocytopenia work with your dr to find cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thrombocytopenia: platelet count is the balance between production (by the Bone Marrow) and consumption. Depending on the cause of Thrombocytopenia you can determine if it is curable or not. If the cause is reversible, YES it is curable. Causes such as low B12/Folate ,or some types of hypothyroidism are reversible and correcting these causes may lead to cure. ...Read more
Find the cause: It's not a common finding, but if you have it, it is 100%. Thrombocytopenia is something that should never be trifled with; if it gets worse it can cause bad bleeding. In a young woman especially, it can herald lupus. Medications, having one's period, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, allergy to quinine in a cocktail, and a variety of other processes can be the cause. ...Read more
Probably not.: Cats are not likely to do this, unless there is a very extreme allergy that triggers a severe autoimmune reaction, and this is real remote. Cats usually spread toxoplasmosis infection as they pass it in their stool, but this is controlled by the immune system. A cause of low platelets can be snake bite like from a pit viper. ...Read more
