Thrombocytopenia

Sorry, no news articles match your request. Your search criteria may be too narrow.

Thrombocytopenia (or thrombopenia) is a relative decrease of platelets in blood.

A normal human platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microlitre of blood. These limits are determined by the 2.5th lower and upper percentile, so values outside this range do not necessarily indicate disease. One common definition of thrombocytopenia is a platelet count below 50,000 per microlitre.
