Case 81 – update 2

Thankfully the bleeding resolves and no surgical intervention is required

The platelet count responds to IVIG, and dexamethasone 40mg given for four days.

Any further investigations required?

 

2 week s following commencement of steroids the platelet count has fallen to 17.  How would you manage this patient?
