Thrombocytopenia May Be Defined As A Subnormal Number Of Platelets In The Circulating Blood Ie Less Than 150 X 109/L. It Is The Most Common Cause Of Abnormal Bleeding. The Causes Of Thrombocytopenia Are Diverse But They Can Be Grouped According To The Distribution By An Immne Or Non Immune Mechanism Or Requestration Of Platelets. Pseudothrombocytopenia Also Should Be Considered In The Differential Diagnosis Particularly In Asymptomatic Patients And Results From Invitro Clumping Of Platelets Following Blood Collection. The Differential Diagnosis Of Thrombocytopenia In Adult Is Broad But Is Acquired In The Vast Majority Of Patients, Usually Associated With An Underlying Disease Or Because Of An Auto Immune Process. A Large Number Adult Patients Are Diagnosed Incidentally On Routine Examination Careful Examination O The Blood Film Is The Bes Means For Narrowing The Differential Diagnosis. This Prospective Study Focuses On The Analysis Of Adult Patients Confirmed With Thrombocytopenia Using Clinical And Relevant Laboratory Parameters To Assure At A Possible Aetiopathogenesis.
