57 Possible Causes for Decreased Platelet Count, Palatal Petechiae

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Infectious mononucleosis should be suspected in patients 10 to 30 years of age who present with sore throat and significant fatigue, palatal petechiae, posterior cervical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , which is a decrease in platelets, the part of your blood that begins the clotting process inflammation of the heart complications that involve the nervous system, such as[healthline.com] Pharyngeal inflammation and palatal petechiae are more common in adolescents.[aafp.org]

  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Here we report a pediatric patient with ALL whose platelet counts decreased at the 102nd week of maintenance treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] the soft and hard palate [ 16 Vaisman B, Medina AC, Ramirez G.[benthamopen.com] In patient n. 4 a decrease of platelet counts was noted when CyA had been tentatively discontinued.[haematologica.org]

  • Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Ten patients subsequently decreased their platelet count, although they were able to attain CR after receiving six doses of anti-D (IgG)-coated RBCs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and, in some cases, damage their megakaryocytes (the cells that produce platelets in the bone marrow), causing a decrease in platelet production.[scripps.edu] […] in platelet counts may cause emotional distress.[novartisoncology.com]

  • Rubella

    Signs There may be petechiae on the soft palate (Forchheimer's sign) but this is not diagnostic for rubella.[patient.info]

  • Thrombocytopenia

    Physical examination revealed petechiae on the extremities, lips, and upper palate and bilateral inspiratory rales and rhonchi.[academic.oup.com] PGRN deficiency further decreased platelet count in a passive-transfer ITP murine model.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her platelet count decreased to 41   10/L, but was stable at 30   10/L for 3 months with platelet transfusion independency for 12 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thrombocytopenia Due to Sequestration

    This predisposes them to a further decrease in their platelet count when the neonate is exposed to concurrent consumptive stress. ie as in an infection.[learn.pediatrics.ubc.ca] Petechiae are small, 2- to 5-mm mm, red or purple macules (spots) that appear most often in the distal lower extremities ( Figure 14-1A ) but also on the conjunctiva and palate[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com] Rapid decrease in platelet count, increased red blood cell lysis are determined during laboratory examination.[iliveok.com]

  • Coagulation Abnormalities

    Approximately 37% CLD cases had decreased platelet count and 15% cases had decreased serum fibrinogen level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Check: Skin, palate and gums for: Bruising. Petechia (non-blanching haemorrhagic spot Purpura (2-10 mm diameter). Ecchymosis ( 10 mm diameter).[patient.info] The studies revealed an increased factor VIII level, decreased platelet count, and a short PTT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pancytopenia

    Palatal petechiae are suggestive of nonspecific thrombocytopenia. Though rarely seen, gum hypertrophy may suggest monocytic infiltration of leukemia.[clinicaladvisor.com] counts.[njlm.net] Within 24 hours of the first dose of fidaxomicin and before the second dose, the patient's platelet count fell to 156,000 platelets/mm3, her hemoglobin concentration decreased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    He has no nasal flaring or palatal petechiae. His oral mucosa is moist and his tongue is pale. His neck is supple without adenopathy.[hawaii.edu] This results in platelet activation endothelial cell damage, and white blood cell activation, leading to systemic TMA, which manifests as decreased platelet count, hemolysis[en.wikipedia.org] platelet count Elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine due to decreased kidney function Blood and protein in urine Presence of shiga toxin-producing E. coli in[davita.com]
