Brief Summary

This study aims to determine the hemato-immunological parameters predictive of the evolution of a Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) towards chronicity, and to identify possible differences between the child and the adult.

Detailed Description

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a rare autoimmune thrombocytopenia whose incidence is 2 to 5 cases / 100,000 inhabitants / year. The potentially serious haemorrhagic risk is the major issue of management. A recent international consensus conference classifies PTI according to the duration of thrombocytopenia: acute ITP (<3 months), persistent ITP (3-12 months) and chronic ITP (> 12 months) (Rodeghiero 2009). In the acute or persistent phase, polyvalent immunoglobulins (IVIG) and / or corticosteroids are proposed. In the chronic phase, splenectomy is a possible cure for 70% of patients. No predictor of treatment response is known. The pathophysiology of ITP is multifactorial: platelet phagocytosis, mediated by autoantibody, macrophages of the reticuloendothelial system, and destruction in the spleen, genetic background and / or environmental factor favoring the role of certain lymphocyte subpopulations, cytotoxic or regulatory T, via their cytokine environment, abnormalities of thrombopoiesis. ITP affects children as well as adults, but the evolutionary profile is very different. In children, ITP, which is often post-infectious, is acute in 80% of cases, whereas ITP in adults has a chronic evolution in 80% of cases. The primary diagnostic and therapeutic practices are similar. The reasons for these evolutionary differences are not known and little studied. Is the orientation of the hemato-immunological response observed during the first episode of ITP different in children and adults? Do these differences explain the evolutionary specificities of the two age groups? Are there hematologic parameters predictive of a response to initial treatments?
