The ITP People Place is a web site on the Internet dedicated to providing information, support, resources, and online networking opportunities to individuals with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). ITP is characterized by abnormally low levels of circulating blood platelets (thrombocytopenia) without a readily apparent cause or underlying disease (idiopathic). The disorder may be characterized by small areas of abnormal bleeding (minor hemorrhages) within skin (dermal) layers or layers below the mucous membranes (submucosal), causing the appearance of small purplish spots on the skin (petechia); bleeding from mucous membranes that may be manifested by nose bleeds, for example; increased susceptibility to bruising; and/or other symptoms. In some cases, affected individuals may exhibit fever, slight enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly), and/or other characteristics. The ITP People Place site offers understandable information about the potential underlying causes of ITP, symptoms and findings associated with the disorder, current treatments, and research conducted on ITP.
