My son is three. February 2016 he came home from daycare, it was a Friday, with bruising down his back and buttocks. I thought he might have scrapped it on the slide . Friday night he was sitting with my mom and his thigh turned dark purple. More bruising Saturday and Sunday. He then Sunday night lightly bumped his head, and a huge purple goose egg appeared. Monday went to see the nurse practitioner. Count 12. He was sent to children's hospital. Ruled out leukemia. Treated his ITP with IVIG. My question is -did any of you audults maybe have this when younger and it was not diagnosed. I am afraid that he will have this as an adult. His platelets have been good since February after treatment. The doctor believes he may never have a problem again
