Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP)

Here's how to remember the laboratory findings for TTP:


TTP = “Thrombose The Platelets”


Only the platelets get used up!Not the factors.


So there will be a low platelet count and a prolonged bleeding time.


The factors don’t get used up so the PT and PTT are normal.
