Abstract

It has been reported that infantile idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) has different clinical features than ITP seen in older ages and classification of bleeding sites and grading of bleeding severity can be used in determining the risk of bleeding. In this study, patients with ITP were divided into two groups according to age (<2 years and 2-5 years). The clinical features, laboratory findings, treatment modalities, rate of response and chronicity, bleeding sites, grades of bleeding were compared between each group. No significant differences were established.
