Thrombocytopenia in the Course of COVID-19 Infection
KeywordsCOVID-19, thrombocytopenia, immune thrombocytopenia, immunoglobulins, eltrombopag
We report three cases of severe thrombocytopenia during COVID-19 infection associated with either cutaneous purpura or mucosal bleeding. The initial investigations ruled out other causes of thrombocytopenia. Two of the patients were treated with intravenous immunoglobulins and eltrombopag, while the third recovered spontaneously. A good clinical and biological response was achieved in all patients leading to hospital discharge.
