According to criteria for the classification of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), thrombocytopenia is one of the disease-defining hematologic disorders. Since the recognition of Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), thrombocytopenia was frequently reported but several studies yielded contradictory results on the association between aPL-positivity and thrombocytopenia.
Thrombocytopenia is defined as a platelet count under 150x10/litre. It may be found as a bystander to other pathology or directly related to an underlying haematological condition. Apart from laboratory artefact, it should be treated seriously as it often reflects serious underlying disease. This review uses short case histories to illustrate how to approach thrombocytopenia during the initial presentation of an adult patient to hospital. This article guides the general hospital physician through the narrow...
Growth factor-independent 1B (GFI1B) variants are a rare cause of thrombocytopenia. We report on a male child who was initially diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenia. However, subtle clinical signs led to suspicion of a genetic cause of thrombocytopenia. Gene panel sequencing revealed a rare variant in GFI1B (C168F), which has recently been reported in several families with thrombocytopenia. We demonstrate that this variant significantly alters platelet parameters in population studies. This case highlight...
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune disease characterized by symptoms of thrombocytopenia and bleeding due to production of autoantibodies against platelets. Recently, the occurrence of polymorphisms has been identified as one of the main causes of disease onset.
Hemodialysis is the most important treatment for patients with the end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Thrombocytopenia is a potential treatment complication related to dialysis. Under normal circumstances, the platelet count would slightly decrease within the first hour of hemodialysis, but get restored towards the end of procedure. In most patients, the platelet count can be maintained within the normal range, and the occurrence of thrombocytopenia is relatively rare in clinical practice. Therefore, the possi...
Evidence exists that placebo effects may influence hormone secretion. However, only few studies examined placebo effects in the endocrine system, including oxytocin placebo effects. We studied whether it is possible to trigger oxytocin placebo effects using a classical conditioning paradigm.
A case of Hunter syndrome, 6½-year-old boy presented with persistent thrombocytopenia and bleeding diathesis. However, cytopenia is not a usual presentation in patients with mucopolysaccharidosis II. After ruling out other causes of severe thrombocytopenia, a clinical possibility of chronic Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection was considered. He was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin for refractory thrombocytopenia and intracranial bleed. This was followed by oral prednisolone. The EBV serology was foun...
A rare case of acquired amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia (AATP) in a 35-year-old woman who presented with anaemia and thrombocytopenia at 22 weeks gestation. The first diagnostic impression was of an evolving aplastic anaemia; however, the patient was simultaneously diagnosed with severe vitamin B deficiency in the setting of vegetarianism. Once the cyanocobalamin deficiency was corrected, a repeat bone marrow biopsy revealed an isolated depletion of megakaryocytes, which suggested the diagnosis of AATP. ...
Thrombocytopenia is a common reason for referral to hematologists in community and hospital practice. A broad differential diagnosis, combined with the potentially life-threatening nature of some presentations necessitates a rapid evaluation of the situation and potential need for emergency intervention; followed by further comprehensive investigation to confirm the diagnosis and institution of longer term management. This review offers an approach to the initial assessment, diagnosis, and referral. We then...
Hematological abnormalities after transplantation are complications that may arise after renal transplantation, of which thrombocytopenia is associated with increased risk of bleeding and other complications. The development of thrombocytopenia is affected by various clinical conditions, and the stromal-derived factor 1 (SDF1) and platelet factor 4 (PF4) genes are known to be involved in the production or destruction of platelets. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of posttransplant...
Thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by a decreased number of platelets in peripheral blood, which can be caused by a myriad of both congenital and acquired disorders. Drug-induced thrombocytopenia (DIT) deserves a special focus since its cumulative incidence can be as high as 10 cases per million population per year, with a prevalence of approximately 25% in critically ill patients. This condition is usually suspected following identification of an acute and severe decrease in platelet count, with...
One of the most important reasons for failure of placebo-controlled randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) is the lack of appropriate methodologies for detecting treatment effect (TE = difference between placebo and active treatment response) in presence of excessively low/high levels of placebo response. Although, the higher the level of placebo response in a trial, the lower the apparent detectable TE. TE is usually estimated in a conventional analysis of a RCT as an 'apparent' TE value conditional ...
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) can occur following exposure to heparin and is characterized by thrombocytopenia with increased risk for thrombosis. This condition is mediated by formation of immunoglobulin G antibodies against platelet factor 4/heparin complexes that can subsequently lead to platelet activation. Herein, we detail the clinical and laboratory findings, treatments, and outcomes of two patients who developed HIT and thrombosis after undergoing collection of hematopoietic progenitor cell...
A placebo drug is defined as a treatment without any specific pharmacological efficacy, that works when the patient thinks to receive an active treatment, through a psychological and physiological mechanism. This study aimed to evaluate the use of placebo in French hospitals, in Polyvalent Medicine units. A questionnaire comprising 15 items was sent to 372 units. The analysis of 153 responses was conducted from dynamic crosstabs in Excel and using the R software available online. The survey confirmed that ...
The impact of thrombocytopenia on revascularization and outcomes in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction remains poorly understood. We sought to evaluate associations between thrombocytopenia, in-hospital management, bleeding, and cardiovascular outcomes in patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction in the United States.
The presence of a hypercoagulable disorder such as heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) may protect against anticoagulant-associated bleeding.
Fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) results from maternal alloantibodies (abs) reacting with fetal platelets expressing paternal human platelet antigens (HPAs), mostly HPA-1a. Anti-HPA-1a abs, are the most frequent cause of severe thrombocytopenia and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH).
To determine the efficacy of the thrombopoietin receptor agonist romiplostim for the prevention of temozolomide-induced thrombocytopenia in newly diagnosed glioblastoma.
To explore the genetic basis of a child affected with refractory leukocytopenia and thrombocytopenia.
Nocebo refers to the adverse events (AEs) experienced when taking a placebo drug and is believed to be a centrally mediated process. We sought to examine the AEs following placebo administration in Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) for Myasthenia Gravis (MG) patients. A systematic literature search was performed on Medline and Web of Science for RCTs for MG pharmacological treatments. We assessed the number of placebo-treated patients reporting at least one AE and the number of dropouts because of AEs. Da...
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura is an acquired thrombocytopenia. Preoperative management of thrombocytopenia is important in patients with gastric cancer. Partial splenic embolization can be effective for patients with thrombocytopenia, but could lead to ischemic necrosis of the remnant stomach when performing subtotal gastrectomy with splenectomy.
Severe fever and thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) is an acute illness with a high mortality (16.2-29.1%). Unfortunately, there is no specific cure or vaccine for SFTS.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) plays an important role in the therapy of hematological malignancies and some nonmalignant diseases. Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is generally used to mobilize and collect hematopoietic stem cells from donors and accelerate neutrophil recovery in transplantation recipients. However, less attention has been paid to the fact that G-CSF administration might result in thrombocytopenia and enhance bleeding risk in HSCT. In this study, we investigate...
Positive and negative expectancies drive behavioral and neurobiological placebo and nocebo effects which in turn can have profound effects on patient improvement or worsening. However, expectations of events and outcomes are often not met in daily life and clinical practice. It is currently unknown how this affects placebo and nocebo effects. We have demonstrated that the violation of expectancies, such as when a discrepancy between what is expected and what is actually presented, reduces both placebo and n...
