IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA PRESENTING AS MASSIVE RETINAL HEMORRHAGE: A CASE REPORT

Shresank Kumar Singh, Yusuf Rizvi

Abstract :

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies are directed against host platelet surface antigen resulting in their peripheral destruction and splenic sequestration, which leads to reduced platelet counts and subsequent complications of bleeding1. It affects approximately 1 in 10,000 in the general population. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura often manifests with petechial skin rash, uising or mucosal bleeding2. Ophthalmic involvement is exceptionally rare3.
