Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura Associated with Hepatitis A Infection in a Five-year Old Boy: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.176
Pages: 
536–8
ABSTRACT
 
Acute hepatitis A infection is usually a self-limiting disease and mostly asymptomatic in children younger than six years old. Extrahepatic autoimmune manifestations such as immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) have been reported rarely in children with acute hepatitis A infection. We report herein a paediatric case with ITP which is due to hepatitis A virus infection.
