Eradication of Helicobacter pylori led to the increased platelet count and provides a new insight for a non-immunosuppressive treatment in selective ITP patients.


In a study conducted in Great Britainit was noted that ITP causes an approximately 60 percent higher rate of mortality compared to gender- and age-matched subjects without ITP.

Platelets which have been bound by antibodies are taken up by macrophages in the spleen which have Fc receptorsand so removal of the spleen reduces platelet destruction. However, since the diagnosis depends on the exclusion of other causes of a low platelet count, additional investigations such as a bone marrow biopsy may be necessary in some cases.

We report a case of year-old woman with ITP who experienced a complete and lasting normalization of the platelet count after receiving treatment for the eradication trombositopeno H.
