In 23 patients with untreated idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (TP), the relation of thrombokinetics to quantitative determinations of megakaryocytes in bone marrow sections was studied. The megakaryocytes were classified into maturation stages, and platelet sizes were determined. Megarkaryocyte number and volume per microliter of bone marrow were significantly higher in ITP as compared to controls. The megakaryocyte number and volume were inversely related to the peripheral platelet count… CONTINUE READING
