Course Summary

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare blood disorder. Patients often experience thrombocytopenia, anemia due to red blood cell destruction, and microvascular thrombosis, and the disease is often connected with an acquired autoimmune deficiency. When the thrombotic microangiopathy affects the kidneys and is caused by bacteria, it is known as hemolytic uremic syndrome. Etiology, complications, monitoring and treatment of the patient with thrombocytopenic purpura and hemolytic uremic syndrome are discussed.
