Jae Yeob Jung, A Rum O, Je Keong Kim, Meerim Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(8):335-340.   Published online August 24, 2016

This study aimed to evaluate the clinical course of childhood immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and to assess the risk factors for developing chronic ITP.


The records of 64 children diagnosed with ITP from November 2005 and December 2014 at single center were retrospectively analyzed.


The median age at diagnosis and the median platelet count were 1 year (range, 1 month to 15 years)...

Case Report
A Case of Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia Related to HLA Antibody
Mi Seon Lee, Hyeon-Soo Lee, Hyun Ok Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(12):1454-1458.   Published online December 15, 2001
Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia(NAIT) is a very rare disease caused by maternal alloantibodies` response to neonatal platelet antigens. Because the most common cause of NAIT is incompatibility for platelet-specific antigens, NAIT cases due to anti-HLA antibodies are very exceptional. The patient was a second born female. She had no petechia or purpura at birth. But her platelet count was 55,000/mm3 and...
A Case of Successful Danazol Therapy in Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia Associated with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Kyung Min Kim, Byeong Seon Lee, Young Seo Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(11):1330-1333.   Published online November 15, 2001
Autoimmune thrombocytopenia and autoimmune hemolytic anemia occur in 10-26% of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE). These hematological manifestations may be the sole presenting sign and can precede the appearance of diagnosable SLE in 5 to 23% of cases. The conventional treatment for SLE associated with these disorders includes corticosteroid therapy and splenectomy, but autoimmune thrombocytopenia or autoimmune hemolytic anemia may...
A Case of Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia due to Anti-HLA A2

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia(NAIT) is a rare disease caused by maternal alloimmunization against fetal platelet surface antigen, which is mainly platelet specific alloantigen or human leukocyte antigen(HLA). During routine hemotology, we accidentally discovered thrombocytopenia in a female fullterm newborn admitted due to jaundice. We excluded NAIT due to human platelet alloantigen(HPA), because the HPA of the mother and baby were the...
