Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)
Immune thrombocytopenia, formerly known as idiopathic or immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), is associated with bleeding of high variability. In primary ITP the etiological background remains unknown in contrast to secondary ITP, and therefore primary ITP remains a diagnosis of exclusion. Several achievements have been made in recent years, including international cooperation to draft guide-lines and management strategies, successful basic science and clinical research, and development of new drugs. The book presents historical details, an overview of the pathophysiology, pharmacology, and clinical aspects, the definition, and classification of ITP, the diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with ITP, patients' perspectives, and future considerations.
