Ayurvedic Treatment Of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura At Central India

About Primary Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura:

Primary Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, also known as primary immune thrombocytopenic purpura and autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, is defined as an isolated low platelet count with normal bone marrow and the absence of other causes of thrombocytopenia.

It causes characteristic purpuric rash and an increased tendency to bleed.

Two distinct clinical syndromes manifest as an acute condition in children and a chronic condition in adults. The acute form often follows an infection and has a spontaneous resolution within 2 months. Chronic Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura persists longer than 6 months without a specific cause.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is an autoimmune condition with antibodies detectable against several platelet surface antigens.



Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) may have no signs and symptoms. When they do occur, they may include:

  • Easy or excessive bruising (purpura)
  • Superficial bleeding into the skin that appears as a rash of pinpoint-sized reddish-purple spots (petechiae), usually on the lower legs
  • Bleeding from the gums or nose
  • Blood in urine or stools
  • Unusually heavy menstrual flow


In some people, thrombocytopenia is caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking and destroying platelets. If the cause of this immune reaction is unknown, the condition is called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Idiopathic means “of unknown cause.”

In most children with ITP, the disorder follows a viral illness, such as the mumps or the flu. It may be that the infection triggers the immune system malfunction.

Increased breakdown of platelets

In people with ITP, antibodies produced by the immune system attach themselves to the platelets, marking the platelets for destruction. The spleen, which helps your body fight infection, recognizes the antibodies and removes the platelets from your system. The result of this case of mistaken identity is a lower number of circulating platelets than is normal.

A normal platelet count is generally between 150,000 and 450,000 platelets per microliter of circulating blood. People with ITP often have platelet counts below 20,000. Because platelets help the blood clot, as their number decreases, your risk of bleeding increases. The greatest risk is when your platelet count falls very low — below 10,000 platelets per microliter. At this point, internal bleeding may occur even without any injury.
