Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an acquired immune mediated disorder characterized by isolated thrombocytopenia. Pediatric ITP patients can develop autoantibodies such as anti-thyroglobulin (TG) and anti-thyroperoxidase (TPO), even in absence of clinical signs of autoimmune disease. Objective; The purpose of this article is to provide a review about: 1) the prevalence of positivity of anti-thyroid antibodies (TPO and TG) in pediatric patients with chronic ITP; 2) the role of autoimmune thyroiditis on the outcome of chronic ITP.

Abstract

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an acquired immune mediated disorder characterized by isolated thrombocytopenia. Pediatric ITP patients can develop autoantibodies such as anti-thyroglobulin (TG) and anti-thyroperoxidase (TPO), even in absence of clinical signs of autoimmune disease. Objective; The purpose of this article is to provide a review about: 1) the prevalence of positivity of anti-thyroid antibodies (TPO and TG) in pediatric patients with chronic ITP; 2) the role of autoimmune thyroiditis on the outcome of chronic ITP.
