Itp (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) is usually treated by a hematologist.

In brief: Usually......

Patients with presumed itp will be referred to a hematologist for evaluation, in part because of the overlap in signs and symptoms between itp and leukemia or marrow failure.
Once a diagnosis is established, patients will usually receive therapy for itp from their hematologist, and may continue to be followed by them. However, many generalists are completely comfortable treating itp long term.
