In brief: No
In a blood dyscrasia (an old-fashioned term), the blood contains very abnormal formed elements.
In idiopathic / autoimune thrombocytopenic purpura, antibodies cause destruction of nice platelets. In thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, lack / suppression of a factor for stopping blood microclotting causes devastatic problems despite normal foremed elements.
