Özet

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) of childhood is a common hematologic disorder. Immune thrombocytopenic purpura is characterized by increased destruction of antibody-coated platelets in the reticuloendothelial system. In the majority of children with acute ITP, thrombocytopenia occurs within 1 to 3 weeks after an infectious disease. Immune thrombocytopenic purpura may also occur after rubella, rubeola, chickenpox, or live virus vaccination. Here we report 2 cases with acute ITP that were developed after honeybee and insect bite.
