My son was diagnosed with acute ITP at age 12, platelets hovered around 30 for about 6 months and then went back up. Now it’s 3 years later. I took him to his Dr cause he was feeling tired and depressed. Platelets are now at 14. I didn’t know this could come back! Is this common to show up periodically?
Thank you in advance, this is just upsetting news.

  • Diagnosis of ITP in 2014. Retired (Nov 2019) renal specialist nurse, 46 years on the NHS front line. My belief is empower patients to be involved as much as possible in their care. Read, read, read & ALWAYS question medics about the evidence base they use

The UK ITP Support Association suggests that about one in 20 children will have a further occurrence in the future.
