History: No changes posted
  Purpose

Intracranial hemorrhage despite being rare, several chronic ITP patients experience moderate to severe behavioral problems including learning difficulties, memory affection .These changes could be due to the presence of minute capillary dysfunction


Condition Intervention
Chronic Thrombocytopenia
Other: IQ assessment and visual- motor assessment
Other: EEG,brain imaging

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 6 Months

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • cognitive, behavioral and/or minimal neurological deficit in patients with chronic ITP [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    cognitive, behavioral and/or minimal neurological deficit in patients with chronic ITP and correlate these changes with radiological evidence of minimal CNS bleeding.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • duration, site and severity of bleeding effect of duration, site and severity of bleeding [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    behavioral and/or minimal neurological deficits and duration, site and severity of bleeding


Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
chronic itp and cerebral dysfunction
patients with chronic itp and had behavioral and or cognitive dysfunction
Other: IQ assessment and visual- motor assessment
Psychological examination and evaluation for both groups to diagnose those with behavioral and /or cognitive dysfunction.
Other Names:
  • Benton visual retention test (BVRT)
  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale
  • Wisconsin Card Sorting test
Other: EEG,brain imaging
For patients with cognitive or behavioral deficit, MRI brain and quantitative EEG will be done to identify any CNS abnormality.
Other Names:
  • quantitative EEG
  • MRI brain
chronic itp only
chronic ITP patients without cerebral dysfunction
Other: IQ assessment and visual- motor assessment
Psychological examination and evaluation for both groups to diagnose those with behavioral and /or cognitive dysfunction.
Other Names:
  • Benton visual retention test (BVRT)
  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale
  • Wisconsin Card Sorting test

Detailed Description:
  • First identify the presence of cognitive, behavioral and/or minimal neurological deficit in patients with chronic ITP and correlate these changes with radiological evidence of minimal CNS bleeding.
  • Second investigate the correlation between these behavioral and/or minimal neurological deficits and duration, site and severity of bleeding (a total of 200 patient of persistently low platelet count < 20x 10 9 for at least more than one month duration).
  • The aim is to assess the behavioral changes in chronic ITP patients, and to assess the possible relation of such changes to duration and recurrence of very low platelet count as well as pattern of bleeding excluding frank intracranial hemorrhage.
