Overview

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic purpura, also known as ITP or Immune thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare condition wherein the patient suffering from the condition has a low level of blood platelets.

Platelets are vital to blood cells that help prevent bleeding. The condition can also occur when the immune system of the patient mistakenly attacks the platelets of the patient. The condition can follow an infection caused by a virus in case of children and can cure in itself thereafter. However, in the case of adults, the condition can be chronic and last for years. Treatment of the condition in case of adults includes medication for bleeding, though in some rare cases the spleen of the infected patient may be removed.
