Treatment of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura with intravenous IgG is proposed for patients with a haemorrhagic score greater than 8. In the absence of contraindications, corticosteroids alone are proposed as first-line therapy in the event of a haemorrhagic score ≤ 8.
mmune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a bleeding disorder caused by a low number of platelets (thrombocytes) that occurs in a person who does not have another disorder that affects platelets. In IPT, the immune system immune system produces antibodies against the platelets of the person himself, leading to their destruction. People may have tiny purple spots on the skin (petechiae) and bleed easily.
Diagnosis is made with blood tests to measure the number of platelets.
Corticosteroids or other drugs are given to block the destruction of platelets.
For some people, drugs that increase platelet production are beneficial.
