  • Abstract Recent reports have suggested, particularly in adults, an association between Helicobacter pylori infection (HPI) and chronic idiopatic thrombocytopenic purpura (cITP) with improvement of platelet count after eradication therapy. We investigated the association of HPI and cITP and the effect of HP eradication therapy on thrombocytopenia in a population of 24 children of both sexes mean age 8·0±0·28 years (range 5·4–10·7 years), affected by cITP (PLT ≤50 × 109/l) lasting more than 6… CONTINUE READING
