Immune thrombocytopenic purpura: A blood disorder characterized by the destruction of blood platelets due to the presence of antiplatelet autoantibodies. Purpura pertains to the visible hallmarks: purplish areas in the skin and mucous membranes (such as the mouth lining) where bleeding has occurred as a result of decreased platelets.
Aside from purpura, evidence of bleeding can include easy bruising ("ecchymosis") and tiny red dots on the skin or mucous membranes ("petechiae"). In some instances, bleeding from the nose, gums, gastrointestinal or urinary tracts may also occur.


Bleeding within the brain is a rare but feared complication. Acute ITP most commonly occurs in young children. Another treatment that usually results in an increased number of platelet is removal of the spleen, the organ that destroys antibody-coated platelet. Other drugs such as vincristine, azathioprine (Imuran), Danazol, cyclophosphamide, and cyclosporine are usually reserved for patients with sever ITP. Lifestyle changes may be helpful for the prevention of bleeding due to injury.
These changes include use of protective gear such as helmets and avoidance of contact sports in symptomatic patients or when platelet counts are less than 50,000. The abbreviation "ITP" is much used.


It stands for both immune thrombocytopenic purpura and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
