Prevalence and clinical significance of the positive antinuclear antibody in children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
So Eun Jun, Seong Sik Park, Young Tak Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(11):1217-1221.   Published online November 15, 2008
Purpose : An association between idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been recognized for decades because thrombocytopenia is the first manifestation in some patients with SLE. However, the risk of later development of SLE in childhood ITP is currently unknown. We retrospectively evaluated the incidence and clinical significance of the positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) in children...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(2):204-208.   Published online February 15, 2008
Purpose : The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and course of neutropenia following intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy in children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Methods : From January 2001 to June 2006, fifty-four patients with ITP were enrolled in this study. Forty-two of 54 patients were treated with IVIG, while the other 12 were treated with...

Change of absolute neutrophil count after intravenous immunoglobulin administration for the children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
Hyun Jung Shin, In Kug Bang, Byung Kyu Choe, Jin-Bok Hwang, Jun Sik Kim, Heung Sik Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(10):982-986.   Published online October 15, 2007
Purpose : Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is effective for the treatment of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in children. Recently, several reports have been published that show its impact on the absolute neutrophil count. The present study was performed to confirm these findings. Methods : Data on 26 ITP patients were analyzed. Patients with febrile illness or increased C-reactive protein levels...
Study on the Correlation between Clinical Classification according to Hemorrhagic Symptoms and Platelet Counts in Childhood Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Ho Il Bang, Sae Ron Shin, Du Young Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(4):412-416.   Published online April 15, 2004
Purpose : Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP) is a relatively common hematologic disease in children. The optimal strategy for treating ITP during childhood is a matter of controversy. In general, platelet count has been the primary, if not the sole measure, on which treatment decisions have been made and outcomes determined. In this study, we tried to find out the correlation between...
Comparison of Effectiveness between Two Different Protocols of Treatment of IV γ-globulin in Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Jae Ho Jang, Moonsouk Lee, Mira Park, Kyuchul Choeh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(4):358-362.   Published online April 15, 2003
Purpose : Several methods of IV γ-globulin(IVG) infusion are effective in the treatment of autoimmune disease, including idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP). But it is not known which method is more effective in the treatment of ITP. The effectiveness of these two methods of IVG infusion was studied in terms of platelet recovery rate, side effects and recurrence rate. Methods : Forty seven...
Changes in Mean Platelet Volume and Platelet Distribution Width after Therapy in Childhood Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Jong Tai Kim, Kyung Won Lee, Soon Nam Kim, Moon Kyu Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(4):505-511.   Published online April 15, 2002
Purpose : Mean platelet volume(MPV) and platelet distribution width(PDW) are useful parameters in evaluating disorders of platelets. In cases with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP), they change as platelet count increases. In this study, we compared the values of MPV and PDW in ITP patients at diagnosis with those of normal children. We also studied whether the early changes in MPV may...
Study of Autoantibodies Against Platelet GP IIb/IIIa and GP Ib/IX in Childhood Chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Chanwook Woo, Junghwa Lee, Kwangchul Lee, Soonkyum Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(3):395-401.   Published online March 15, 2000
Purpose : Chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(CITP) is an autoimmune disease caused by autoantibodies reacting to certain antigens, and platelet glycoprotein(GP) IIb/IIIa and GP Ib/IX complexes are thought to be some of those antigens. However, the clinical significance of anti-GP autoantibodies in CITP patients is unknown. In this study, we investigated the clinical correlation between the presence of circulating autoantibodies against...
A Comparative Study o fIntavenous Methylprednisolone Dosage for Treatment of Children with Acute Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura
Eun Ju Shin, Yeong Jae Song, Woo Yeong Chung, Tae Gyu Hwang, Soon Yong Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1995;38(4):513-519.   Published online April 15, 1995
Purpose : It is well known that use of intranenous methylprednisolone(IVMP)for the patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(ITP) is not only as effective as use of intravenous gammaglobulin to mincrease platelets quickly, but also the former is less expensive than the latter. As the adequate dosage of IVMP has not been fully elucidated, we have tried to determine it. Methods : The...
The Role of Anitiplatelet Antibody and the Therapeutic Effect of High-Dose I.V. gamma-globulin in Childhood Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.
Kyu Chul Choi, Sang Ho Park, Yong Mook Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1988;31(2):212-219.   Published online February 28, 1988
Among 48 children with I.T.P (26 acute, 10 chronic and 12 undetermined), the antiplatelet antibody test (APA) was qualitatively studied by indirect immunofluorescent method in 34 patients of which only 25 patients (18 acute and 7 chronic) were able to follow-up. The overall positivity of APA was 36% and there was no relationship with disease chronicity. Intravenous r-globulin was given at a dose of...
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura in Children.

Forty four children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) were analyzed retrospectively and the following prognostic factors were obtained in response to treatments and clinical courses. And 73.5% of all cases were recovered within 6 months after onset (acute ITP). The patients who were admitted within 1st or 2nd week after onset showed more favorable prognosis with significance (p<0.05 and p< 0.005, respectively). The patients...
