We deserve no credit for the muddied waters of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia terminology. The concept of early, mild, nonimmune, clinically inconsequential heparin-induced thrombocytopenia was advanced years ago as heparin-induced thrombocytopenia type 1 (1). In fact, low platelet counts in some hospitalized patients may often be unrelated to heparin and may be due instead to infection, surgery, other drugs, and stresses. The recommendation to designate this as heparin-associated thrombocytopenia to distinguish it from serious heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (2) has not gained wide favor. Furthermore, separating heparin-induced thrombocytopenia from heparin-induced thrombocytopenia with thrombosis syndrome is artificial and misleading, since isolated heparin-induced ...

Thrombocytopenia, encountered frequently among patients with HCV-related chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis, is usually aggravated during IFN-based antiviral therapy. In several large-scale clinical trials, the incidence of severe on-treatment thrombocytopenia was 3-5% among all patients with chronic hepatitis C [2-4]. In the current study, severe thrombocytopenia occurred more frequently (12.8%) in patients with baseline thrombocytopenia. Roomer et al. (2010) documented that patients with baseline thrombocytopenia were vulnerable to severe thrombocytopenia [5]. This group also found that severe thrombocytopenia was significantly associated with bleeding events. In the present study, severe thrombocytopenia did occur in some patients during antiviral therapy, but it was not followed by mortality or major morbidity. Instead, severe thrombocytopenia was associated with higher rates of premature discontinuation of therapy.. Thrombocytopenia is one of the extrahepatic manifestations of HCV infection. ...
Thrombocytopenia can be caused by many different underlying disorders. The diagnostic approach to this haematological abnormality may, therefore, be challenging for physicians. Causes of thrombocytopenia may be classified according to decreased production, increased peripheral consumption or destruction, or abnormal distribution of platelets. Additionally, it is important to rule out pseudothrombocytopenia, a laboratory artefact caused in vitro by ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) anticoagulants. Here we discuss the clinical and laboratory evaluation of drug-induced thrombocytopenia based on the description of two patients, one with ceftriaxone-induced thrombocytopenia and the other with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. Drug-induced thrombocytopenia is rare, but it is an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of thrombocytopenic patients. The aetiology is often not recognised or is ascribed to other complications such as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) or immune ...
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is a complication of treatment with the blood-thinner (anticoagulant) heparin that can cause low platelets in the blood and an increased risk of blood clotting (thrombosis). A test for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT, heparin-PF4) antibody detects these antibodies that develop in some people treated with heparin and helps diagnosis heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT type II).
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is a potentially life-threatening complication of heparin or low-molecular-weight heparin administration. We describe the case of a patient with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia complicated by pulmonary embolism, successfully treated with fondaparinux, a factor Xa inhibitor. We also review the literature regarding the use of this anticoagulant in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia complicated by thrombosis. Few treatment options are available in Belgium, and there is little evidence regarding newer anticoagulants. ...
HIT-RADIO is a retrospective chart-review study of patients who had a positive heparin PF-4 antibody test between 1/21/2008 and 9/25/2008 at selected hospitals associated with the Transfusion Medicine/Hemostasis Clinical Trials Network .. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a major complication of the administration of heparin and can result in life-threatening thrombosis with or without thrombocytopenia (HIT-T) or can produce thrombocytopenia without clinically symptomatic thrombosis (isolated HIT). Isolated heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is defined as a fall in platelet count associated with a positive heparin PF-4 antibody test, in the absence of clinically overt thrombosis. While the treatment of HIT-T (HIT with thrombosis) with anticoagulation is well established, the risks and treatment of isolated HIT are unclear.. It is anticipated that this data analysis will provide a current overview of the implications of a positive heparin PF-4 antibody test in clinical practice. It should ...
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is the development of thrombocytopenia (a low platelet count), due to the administration of various forms of heparin, an anticoagulant. HIT predisposes to thrombosis (the abnormal formation of blood clots inside a blood vessel) because platelets release microparticles that activate thrombin, thereby leading to thrombosis. When thrombosis is identified the condition is called heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (HITT). HIT is caused by the formation of abnormal antibodies that activate platelets. If someone receiving heparin develops new or worsening thrombosis, or if the platelet count falls, HIT can be confirmed with specific blood tests. The treatment of HIT requires stopping heparin treatment, and both protection from thrombosis and choice of an agent that will not reduce the platelet count any further. Several alternatives are available for this purpose and mainly used are danaparoid, fondaparinux, argatroban and bivalirudin. While heparin ...

Clinical symptoms associated with this condition include lethargy, fever, melena, hematemesis, hematuria, hematochezia, epistaxis and mucosal petechiations or ecchymotic hemorrhages on the mucous membranes. Many of these symptoms are referable to underlying thromboembolism and/or hemorrhagic episodes[25]. Spontaneous hemorrhage does not typically occur unless platelets are less than 50,000 and some dogs, buccal mucosal bleeding times may be normal. Hematological analysis usually reveals reduced thrombocyte numbers and elevated partial thromboplastin time (normal = 9.6-13.8) and prothrombin time (normal = 7.5-9.9)[26]. Macrothrombocytes and fusiform cytoplasmic inclusion bodies in neutrophils may be observed in some cases (May-Hegglin anomaly). The diagnosis of immune-mediated thrombocytopenia is made by the exclusion of the secondary causes of thrombocytopenia. Bone marrow cytological analysis should be performed to assess appropriate cellularity within the bone marrow to exclude evidence of ...
Thrombocytopenia is a disorder in which there are too few platelets and the blood does not clot properly. People who have thrombocytopenia may bleed a lot from an injury because they have an abnormally low number of platelets.. Some conditions or diseases lead to thrombocytopenia because they destroy a persons platelets or interfere with their production. Certain medicines may also cause thrombocytopenia. A person who has a low platelet count with no known cause is said to have immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).. Symptoms of thrombocytopenia include:. ...
Background. The 2008 WHO classification identified refractory cytopenia with unilineage dysplasia (RCUD) as a composite entity encompassing refractory anemia, refractory thrombocytopenia (RT), and refractory neutropenia (RN), characterized by 10% or more dysplastic cells in the bone marrow respective lineage. The diagnosis of RT and RN is complicated by several factors. Diagnosing RT first requires exclusion of familial thrombocytopenia, chronic auto-immune thrombocytopenia, concomitant medications, viral infections, or hypersplenism. Diagnosis of RN should also be made after ruling out differential diagnoses such as ethnic or familial neutropenia, as well as acquired, drug-induced, infection-related or malignancy-related neutropenia. An accurate quantification of dysplasia should be performed in order to distinguish RT or RN from the provisional entity named idiopathic cytopenia of unknown significance (ICUS). Cytogenetic analysis, and possibly in the future somatic mutation analysis (of genes ...
BACKGROUND: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) complicated by severe thrombocytopenia and thrombosis can pose significant treatment challenges. Use of alternative anticoagulants in this setting may increase bleeding risks, especially in patients who have a protracted disease course. Additional therapies are lacking in this severely affected patient population.. METHODS: We describe three patients with HIT who had severe thromboembolism and prolonged thrombocytopenia refractory to standard treatment but who achieved an immediate and sustained response to IVIg therapy. The mechanism of action of IVIg was evaluated in these patients and in five additional patients with severe HIT. The impact of a common polymorphism (H/R 131) in the platelet IgG receptor FcγRIIa on IVIg-mediated inhibition of platelet activation was also examined.. RESULTS: At levels attained in vivo, IVIg inhibits HIT antibody-mediated platelet activation. The constant domain of IgG (Fc) but not the antigen-binding portion ...
Drug-induced thrombocytopenia requires a high suspicion for diagnosis and a broad investigation to exclude other etiologies of low platelets. Cessation of the offending agent often results in recovery of platelet counts. Many medications are known to cause a degree of thrombocytopenia. We present a rare case of severe thrombocytopenia associated with administration of azithromycin.

Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a drug induced immune mediated thrombocytopenia that affects up to 3% of patients treated with unfractionated heparin (UFH). It is less frequent when low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) are used. Fondaparinux does not seem to induce HIT. A functional and an antigen assay should be performed to confirm the clinical diagnosis of HIT. Immediate cessation of heparin and start of compatible anticoagulant is mandatory when HIT is suspected clinically. Danaparoid (a heparinoid)and the direct thrombin inhibitors lepirudin and argatroban are available for this purpose. Short-term reexposure with heparin, for example during cardiopulmonary bypass, is possible in patients with history of HIT, provided HIT antiodies are no longer detectable. In children systematic data on treatment of HIT are lacking.. ...

Platelets are the first responders to a bleeding incident. If the full platelet force does not arrive on the scene, bleeding will continue and peticheae, bruises, and perhaps even hemorrhaging will occur. A decreased platelet force (thrombocytopenia) may be caused by several diseases or disorders. On the other hand, a low platelet count may not actually mean that the full platelet force is not available to respond. It is up to the laboratory professional to determine if there is anything in the collection procedure that has artificially produced this low count. This course will increase your understanding of various authentic causes of thrombocytopenia and will alert you to various causes of spurious thrombocytopenia that you, as a medical laboratory scientist should be able to recognize and correct to prevent false reporting of thrombocytopenia..

1. What if the pregnant patient with a diagnosis of ideopathic thrombocytopenic purpura does not respond to initial therapy? If a patient with presumptive diagnosis of ITP and platelet count less than 70,000/ul fails to have any response to IV IgG or steroids, diagnosis of congenital thrombocytopenic disorder should be considered. Platelet and WBC morphology should be carefully examined, and genetic analysis for MPL, WAS, and RUNX1 mutations may be performed. Past history of thrombocytopenia or a family history of thrombocytopenia is helpful, as is history of bleeding.. Patients with congenital thrombocytopenia can have more pronounced thrombocytopenia during pregnancy. Patients with ITP can fail to respond to first line therapy, and more aggressive therapy with IV IgG (1gram/kg per day for two days) or high dose IV methylprednisolone (1 gram per day for two days), or combination of both, can be used. Duration of response can be short, in which case splenectomy can be considered prior to 26 ...
Peginterferon alfa-2 with ribavirin is the current standard of care for the treatment of HCV infection; however, severe hematologic effects, including anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia, may make this treatment less than ideal for patients with HCV. Medications to prevent or treat serious neutropenia and anemia have been established and are commonly used. However, thrombocytopenia remains a barrier to the effective treatment of HCV infection in some patients. Developing a more effective treatment for thrombocytopenia for these patients would decrease the risk of serious bleeding events. It may also improve HCV treatment outcomes by preventing dose modifications or discontinuations of peginterferon alfa-2 and ribavirin due to thrombocytopenia.. Anti-D is an antibody to the Rh (D) antigen on red blood cells. When anti-D attaches to the Rh (D) antigen, immune-mediated destruction of platelets is prevented, helping to alleviate low platelet levels in people with thrombocytopenia. This study ...

Thrombocytopenia may be associated with a variety of conditions, with associated risks that may range from life-threatening bleeding or thrombosis (eg, in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia [HIT]) to no risk at all. At the time of initial presentation,
Results: During the study period, 2667 patients were admitted to the NICU and 395 (14%) had thrombocytopenia during hospitalization. The rate of IVH was 7.3%. Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that although lower platelet counts were associated with a higher IVH rate, the effects of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), sepsis, and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) were more prominent than the degree of thrombocytopenia. Thirty patients (7%) received PT, and these patients showed a significantly higher mortality rate than that of their non-PT counterparts (p , 0.001). In addition, it was found that the use of PMI-based criteria for PT in our patients would reduce the rate of PT by 9.5% (2/21 ...
Diagnosis. Thrombocytopenia is diagnosed based on history, clinical signs, physical examination findings, and laboratory tests. A platelet count is included in a complete blood count (CBC), which will allow your veterinarian to determine the severity of the thrombocytopenia. Other tests may be performed to determine what is causing the low platelet numbers. These may include a blood chemistry panel, urinalysis, radiography (x-rays), ultrasound, tests for immune diseases, tests for infectious disease, and taking a bone marrow sample.. Treatment. Thrombocytopenia needs to be treated as soon as it is recognized. Many of the illnesses that cause thrombocytopenia are not obvious right away. Your veterinarian may choose to start treatment for the most common causes before knowing the exact one. Initial treatments may include blood or plasma transfusions, steroids, and antibiotics. As the diagnosis becomes clear, your veterinarian may customize treatment. Some patients may need to be medicated for ...

Immune thrombocytopenia: improving quality of life and patient outcomes Patrick Trotter,1,2 Quentin A Hill3 1Department of Surgery, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK; 2National Health Service Blood and Transplant, Organ Donation and Transplant Directorate, Bristol, UK; 3Department of Haematology, St James’s University Hospital, Leeds, UK Abstract: Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an immune-mediated disorder characterized by a reduced platelet count and patients may develop bruising or mucosal bleeding. Since 2003, generic health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measures have been applied and ITP-specific measures developed, alongside trials of novel therapeutic agents. These have identified significant morbidity in patients with ITP, including fatigue, fear of bleeding and a negative impact on role, social and work activities. This review critically evaluates HRQoL data in adults and children with ITP. It also considers the impact of treatment and how patient-reported outcomes might be applied
Tirofiban is a glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor antagonist used in the treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Thrombocytopenia is a well-known complication of GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors. Life-threatening complications such as alveolar and gastrointestinal system hemorrhages may occur in the course of thrombocytopenia. Platelet count should be monitored closely, including during the first few hours of the infusion. Adverse events may be prevented by prompt discontinuation of the therapy. Herein we present two cases of profound and sudden thrombocytopenia associated with tirofiban use in the treatment of ACS together with a review of the literature. ...

Some forms, such as thrombocytopenia 4 (THC4), are very rare and not well characterized. THC4 is an autosomal dominant mild thrombocytopenia described in only one large family from New Zealand and due to a mutation (G41S) of the somatic isoform of the cytochrome c (CYCS) gene. We report a novel CYCS mutation (Y48H) in patients from an Italian family. Similar to individuals carrying G41S, they have platelets of ...
Inherited thrombocytopenias have long been considered exceedingly rare, but recent advances have facilitated diagnosis and greatly increased the number of reported patients.17 Although population studies have not yet been performed, it has recently been calculated that the prevalence of ITs in Italy is at least 2.7 in 100,000.18 The improved knowledge of ITs has also changed our view of their clinical picture. It has been shown that bleeding tendency is mild in the majority of patients and spontaneous life-threatening hemorrhage is uncommon/rare.11 Nevertheless, hemostatic challenges always need careful attention. Pregnancy and delivery are especially critical because both mothers and affected newborns are at risk of hemorrhage. However, published data are insufficient to provide an evidence-based approach to management during pregnancy and delivery. The present study on 339 pregnancies in 181 women with 13 different ITs provides, for the first time, the opportunity to systematically examine ...

PCI in a patient with an increased baseline risk of bleeding can be challenging. Of all bleeding disorders, TCP is the most common but these patients are typically excluded from clinical trials and single-center studies are underpowered to detect significant differences. The current analysis addresses this clinically relevant question in a large, propensity-matched cohort. First, the incidence of cTCP was as high, as 2.5% of all patients undergoing PCI. This is similar to the incidence in the general population and validates the case finding approach in the current study while underscoring the need to optimize outcomes in an increasing common disease. Second, PCI in cTCP was associated with a higher risk of bleeding complications, ischemic CVA, and mortality after PCI. Although the increased bleeding risk and hemorrhagic stroke is intuitive, the higher rate of ischemic CVA is puzzling. Because these patients were well matched in their baseline characteristics, differences in PCI strategies or ...
Thrombocytopenia 2 (THC2) is one of the most prevalent forms of inherited thrombocytopenia. It is caused by a heterogeneous group of ANKRD26 gene mutation and shows a heterogeneous clinical and laboratory characteristics. We present a big Chinese family with 10 THC2 patients carrying c.-128G > T heterozygous substitution in the 5-untranslated region of the ANKRD26 gene. Although the platelets are fewer than 50 × 109/L in 8 THC2 family members, only the proband and her son show a higher WHO bleeding score. The proband and her son are also beta-thalassemia carriers with heterozygous c.52A > T mutation of HBB, which might not be associated with the increased bleeding tendency since 3 other family members with low bleeding tendency also carried both ANKRD26 c.-128G > T and HBB c.52A > T mutations. However, the proband and her son also show hypofibrinogenaemia, which is likely the cause of their more severe clinical manifestation. HID1 c.442G > T mutation was detected not only in these two
The aim of this review is to provide the Croatian medical public with novel insights into the definition, pathogenesis, diagnostic algorithms and treatment approaches to immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in adults. Recently, primary ITP has been uniformly defined as an autoimmune disorder characterized by an isolated platelet count lower than 100 x 10(9)/L without preexisting disease or conditions, which could lead to thrombocytopenia. The recognition of primary and secondary ITP is important because they require different treatment strategies. In secondary ITP, therapeutic approach oriented towards the underlying disorder. Unlike childhood onset ITP, which is a self-limited condition with high rates of spontaneous remissions, adulthood onset ITP usually has chronic course. Previously, the pathogenesis of ITP was considered to be immune mediated destruction of platelets in liver and spleen, while recent findings have shown a novel pathophysiological pathway based on the inhibition of thrombopoiesis, ...
