Sasirekha B. | Beena Precilla G. S. | Sanjupriya S. | Pranavadhyani G.


Abstract: Thrombocytopenic purpura is a hemorrhagic disorder characterized by decreased production or increased destruction of platelets. It can be caused due to various factors such as immune mediated mechanism, drugs and infections. According to its severity, it can manifests as easy bruising, spontaneous gingival bleeding, petechiae, ecchymosis or hematoma. The laboratory investigation is important at the first visit for early diagnosis and prophylactic measures during any dental procedures. This paper outlines that the clinical signs of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura are rare and the professional must be able to recognize these conditions and provide effective treatment for the patient.


Keywords: bleeding disorder, platelets, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, ecchymosis, hemostatic agents
