Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)


Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by a low platelet count in the blood, leading to an increased risk of bleeding and bruising. The immune system mistakenly targets and destroys platelets, which are essential for blood clotting. The exact cause of ITP is unknown, and it can affect both children and adults.
