My 26 year old daughter developed ITP 10 days ago following a bout of chickenpox. Her platelet level has fluctuated from 2 to 7 since. They initially tried platelet and blood transfusions but this didn't make any difference. They were constantly giving her immunoglobulin which made her very sick and eventually failed her kidneys. At this point they moved her to ITU and thankfully her kidneys are working again. She is now being treated with steroids and a new weekly injection, the first of which was given on Tuesday and she had an early top up yesterday. The doctors seem baffled. Has anyone had a similar experience?
