Thrombocytopenia is the principal focus of this website. Thrombocytopenia can be caused by failure of the bone marrow to produce normal numbers of platelets. Bone marrow failure has multiple causes. These are not discussed on this website.
Thrombocytopenia can also be caused by increased destruction of platelets once they are produced and released into the circulating blood. These disorders are the focus of this website. They are described briefly here and in more detail in their specific sections on this website.
