Urgent : Treatment of ITP

My ward age is 14 yrs old, in the month of September 2012, he suffered from fever and some blue spots started appearing on his body, on the basis of bone marrow biopsy report Doctor told us that it was ITP. The treatment of hematologist started 40 mg Steroids (Omnacortil) started. My ward is now abnormal condition and no improvement thereafter and his platelets counts decreases continuously. 3 month back his nose started bleeding suddenly and he admitted in the hospital and was given 1 Unit SDP (single donor platelets) after 1 week all platelets got discharged and his platelets counts were 19000, than a tablet called “Revolade” 50 mg started but there was no response from this tablets, after that doctor advised us  for spleen ectomy. We planned for this operation for spleen ectomy on 18 march 2013 but his platelets counts did not get increased even after the surgery. According to the doctor there was response from this surgery and his platelets count are now 25000 only. He is taking 40mg of steroids at this time. Please suggest us what can we do now. Thanks in adv.

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your ward. At times H pylori infection of the gut causes platlet count to remain low despite treatment. This infection can be diagnosed by a carbon urea breath test. Treating this infection often improves the platelet count. Other than this other treatments have been tried. If there is no H pylori infection, then you can ask your doctor about novel drugs being tried. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
