Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura - Better Health Channel -open

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a rare autoimmune disorder. The person's blood doesn't clot properly because the blood clotting platelets are destroyed by antibodies. Symptoms include bruising easily, a rash of small red dots, bleeding from the gums or any area of the body, frequent nosebleeds and abnormal menstruation.
